you were the sailor

You were the sailor 

That I lost at sea 

I would look for you 

I’d keep the lighthouse on 

In case your ship ever found its way 

Home 

I would wrap that old blue blanket 

Around my fragile bones 

And wait for you 

My sailor 

That always came back 

Even after the roughest storms 

I waited

For something that drowned 

Thousands of miles away.
