When my ship sails


When the dark hour descends

And billowing masts set sail

When ship’s bow divides waves

Let me salute at the helm

Leave legacy of gold setting sun

Blue skies for humanity’s dreams

And for those whom I have loved

Remember celebration’s laughter

And find gold nuggets gift wrapped

Hold dear my pearls of wisdom

And forgive my imperfections,

Empty chairs and cold spaces.

Though soft raindrops may fall

Look for rainbow’s bright glow

In your deepest moments of need

Above all be true to  God living in you.
