Vessel Of The Soul

This vessel sails now haunted
As time will come to show
Worn and weathered from the journeys
That it has come to know

The planks they bend and give way
Like tired and aching bones
The cabins all are empty
From those who left long ago

Raindrops fall upon the sail
Like tears known to a face
As waves rush against to rock it
A reminder of a needed embrace

Always drifting far from home
Docking only to turn around and go
Facing one more time upon the tides
This vessel of the soul
