For the One
acrylic on canvas
102 x102 cm
For not many would I travel so far and so fast
But for you, dear heart I set off and cast
My eyes to the skyline, my mind to the shore
Where I see you, held tight, waiting for more.
I’ll peg rockets to rudder and gust wind in my sails
Tether dolphins and mermaids to the bow lest strength fails.
Cut holes in the hull and use my own feet
Pounding over the sand and the coral and reef
Enlist pirates and navies and the waves of the sea
To move now post haste and restore unto thee.
