Patti Morelli

Author        Poet

As we sail through this life

Many times we find ourselves at

The ocean of despair

What lies ahead is mainly worry and fear

The water of life may seem smooth and calm

But we know this is only for a time

Choose your course if you dare

Or wait till the the waves take you without care

We have sailed this ocean before but to no avail

We ride the waves swim the currents

Sometimes just drifting

Going neither here nor there

One thing is certainly sure

Sooner or later you will return

To this ocean of despair
