Thank you for your

gentle push at the shore.

Just a nod to send

me floating on my way.


Survivor ship, made

of the strongest paper to be

found, you battled much,

and for a long time.


Now you are headed

seaward to the unknown

swell of sound and light 

while I paddle here.


I am sure a reunion is on

order and probably already 

happened as you began

a new voyage.
