Bring Me Safely to Shore


The ancient lover in me
will forever cry out
for the ancient lover in you

I can no more silence it
than hungry rocks
silence the foghorn

Let my lament be the mariner's
guiding star
in the dark of night

Oh ancient lover,
bring me safely to shore
for it is cold and I am trembling

I even sent it to an x who enjoys your poetry a great deal. He and i can no longer be together for many reasons but this spoke to both of us.
