I always answer
     Without hesitation
          To adventure’s calls
Through waves that toss
     Winds that batter
          I survive squalls

On a sea of emotion
     Alone I swirl
          Feeling blue
My rowboat has two oars
     Two benches
          Shouldn’t it carry two?

Sky and sea
     Speak of eternity
          But they have each other
I would give all
     Just to know love
          And sail with another

A beautifully written and poignant poem Carolyn. We live to love and without love we live a lonely life of longing. Your poem has a deep and powerful message. Love it and enjoyed it! :)

Lovely poem, Carolyn. I've thought about getting a big sailboat with my husband, disconnecting from it all and just being free. Maybe someday.
