A Prayer

As you promised,
I stand here waiting
to understand,

to calm down;
for my boat has been
tossed around,

Caught in a squall
and about to
capsize again;

its sail utterly
destroyed and its
body, broken.

I hear only of
thousands of
raging waves,

and my own cries
of desperately asking
to be saved.

There is but one
flicker I saw
from a distance

I give up my last
strength and take it as
a second chance,

and dreaming of
a cozy yet
abandoned cabin,

I reached out
my dear hand
and hoping

that my captain
will take me back
to his ship,

where finally
I can get some
real sleep

As you promised.
