Come Sail Away!

Submitted by Libby on Thu, 02/28/2019 - 06:35

I didn't know the pain of separation.
I couldn't feel the worth of your existence.
I tossed aside the times we played together
as if they didn't mean a thing to me.
And then
you left
and I was left
Regret for the pain
the insensitivities,
the hurt
that I've caused you...
it hurt my soul with a pain
that wrung my heart
'til I
couldn't stand the silence
I wrote these words for you:

"Come sail away with me
Let's go someplace on the sea
Let's just get away from the pace of the world
And live...just live.
Don't leave me again—
I miss you, my friend.
My heart's still with you
Across the ocean wide."

And maybe someday, I'll find the courage
to tell you these words
engraved on my heart...
I love you.

Libby, I can't tell you how much I love this poem. It's hard to put into words how this really resonated with me, so I will leave it at the fact that it struck some deep cords within me.

Introverts unite!
From the comfort of your own homes!

Libby this is gorgeous. Very heartfelt and deep. Thank you for sharing such a personal piece with us! Love you. <3

I don’t thrive off of chaos: chaos thrives off of me.
