On These Hither Shores – The Chosen Fate

by May 28, 2005Poetry


Standing on these shores…
I see a ship
that has started to sail away
into the West of yesterday.
Never to return; it now has gone…
and I wonder
will my path be the same?
Am I to take a ship into the West?

There is a sunset on the water now
its beauty fills my mind…
Am I to take a ship
and sail away
to blessed West of yesterday
or will I stay here
on these Hither shores?

Standing on these shores
I see my ship…
Will it ever sail away
into the West of this day?
Never to return; will it be gone
like the ship that I saw
just sail into the West?

There is the moonlight on the water now;
all turns to silver glass…
I will not take my ship
and sail away;
go to the West of this blessed day
Yes I will stay here
on these Hither Shores….

My fate awaits me
on these Hither Shores…..
