The Ship Has Sailed, Now Past

The ship has sailed, now past
The shore from whence it launched
Not even a faded view exists
Now just water, waves, and mists

The ship has sailed, now past
The point of no return
I set my sights to lands ahead
To discover new poems, to unlearn

The ship has sailed, now past
Yesterday’s tales of wonder
With each day, memory forsakes
Heartbreaks, mistakes, keepsakes

The ship has sailed, now past
Its berth could not have last
Too large for a dock to agree
A vessel at home at sea

The ship has sailed, now past
The names left behind
Once friends, now strangers
No surprise among changers

The ship has sailed, now past
Unfettered, unhindered, free
The caravel’s captain’s hopes
No longer bound by ropes
