Sailboat

Don’t Sail Alone

by Brooks Agnew

Don’t sail alone.
‘Cuz the stars can be misleading,
Drifting horizons far away.
Soft voices lost in the wind
That filled her sails;
Land was suddenly yesterday.

The sea sometimes is silent,
And moons can take a breath away;
When moments are perfect;
Her breath on my lips,
Her hair perfectly,
Across my eyelids on the bow.

She tacked across the moonlight,
And dropped a word into my palm.
A bit too long it lingered,
Like any other thought considered,
But I looked up from that tender moment,
And she was gone.
