Lifeboat


Upon the sea I drift
Far long I have
Swaying, and swaying
Tossed and turned
Barely afloat
For I have no boat
I cling to driftwood
To prevent my despair
I hold it closely with care
Yet it doesn't do all
Because I am tall
Waves crash
I cling dear
Holding tight
With all my might
But the angry waves
Pull all my strength
And the driftwood goes
In fear I swim for dear life
Not thinking about else
Then I see more driftwood
I cling close
Barely afloat
Thinking to be secure
I was sure
The sea raged
My driftwood departed
Driftwood after driftwood
I clung so close
But it fails to keep me afloat
Then one day I lost my hope
And let go...
When the sea raged once more
I was slowly sinking
Almost swallowing myself whole
Then to my eye
A lifeboat coming near
Then with might
I fought the sea
Swam onward with faith
Climbed upon it did I
The sea calmed
Thankful for my sparing
It held me up
Never to almost sink
Safe, safe no fear
No more driftwood to cling to
Then I followed the bright beacon home....

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
