Your Ship Came In

Your Ship Came In sonnet poems

Uploaded by Shirley B


You lingered in a deep and restless sea,
Ostensibly, a man content to be
Untethered by the bonds of wedded bliss;
Resistant to the charms of every Miss.

Simplistic in your chosen way of life,
Hard-fast, you vowed to never take a wife.
In stormy times you suffered solitude,
Preferring that to being misconstrued.

Champagne at breakfast time – you had your fill.
Another ghost upon your window-sill.
Meandering with tides that rolled and fell.
Enduring what, in truth, was living hell.

Inevitably, fortune took your hand.
Now, steadfastly, she anchors you to land.

We all need love in our lives, even if it takes time for some to realise that fact. Nicely penned indeed. ~ Robert.
