Two Ships

I began to fall the day you decided to leave
Love had graced us but for a moment
And like two ships passing in the night
We sailed on with nothing but our sails waving goodbye

But my ship begin to sing
And it was you who stirred this melody
You who's touch ignited my pen strokes
Under which my notes turned to song

Bracing myself I turned the helm
I readied the canons lowered my sails
Setting a course after you and gaining speed
I soon arrived at my courage

I stood, I screamed, I yelled and it passed
The moment I mean in which I poured out my heart
The smoked cleared as my ship began to sink
For it was I who took the hit

Standing atop the tallest mast
I watched as your ship sail west
And like two ships passing in the night
You sailed on with nothing but your sails waving goodbye
