The Ship Of Love


Decided to return to my more sensitive writings To get back to where I first started Expressing the thoughts of my true inner soul Humour and I briefly will be parted Amazed I've been to go back and rediscover What inspired me back then as it did Detached as if someone else was the author Into a strange familiarity, I slid I'm still the same person, just a little older With the same outlook, I strive Still overjoyed to be alive and still breathing A love of life is how I survive This beautiful vista lasts a very short time Before we know it, the trumpet blows Calling us up yonder to that great paradise Wish it could last, what a show To be alive, to know the feeling of love Nothing ever approaches the joy Knowing it's returned without reservation There's no greater reason to rejoice Years move on relentlessly but what never fades A lasting joy for this very short trip Honored for this happiness I've been granted Sailing away on life's love ship!!! Dedicated to Laura with love!

This reads as the Jack I first met :) Whether "serious" or humorous your poetic heart shines through regardless

"Into a strange familiarity, I slid "...."A love of life is how I survive"...Love those lines. I feel the love! Beautifully written, Jack..just beautiful...I'm touched that you are deciding to do this -as always, I look forward to it! From humor, to wisdom, to romance, you will surely thrill. So so proud of you dear. Setting soulful sail with you, with a smile. :) Always, Laura
