Come Sail Away!

A Poem By Libby // 2/28/2019

I didn't know the pain of separation.
I couldn't feel the worth of your existence.
I tossed aside the times we played together
as if they didn't mean a thing to me.
And then
you left
and I was left
alone.
Regret for the pain
the insensitivities,
the hurt
that I've caused you...
it hurt my soul with a pain
that wrung my heart
'til I
couldn't stand the silence
anymore...
I wrote these words for you:

"Come sail away with me
Let's go someplace on the sea
Let's just get away from the pace of the world
And live...just live.
Don't leave me again—
I miss you, my friend.
My heart's still with you
Across the ocean wide."

And maybe someday, I'll find the courage
to tell you these words
engraved on my heart...
maybe,
someday...
I love you.

Libby, I can't tell you how

Libby, I can't tell you how much I love this poem. It's hard to put into words how this really resonated with me, so I will leave it at the fact that it struck some deep cords within me.

"To live is to love with the passion of a thousand stars. To love is to live despite the pain of a thousand scars. Anything in between is a passing shadow." ~Michael Joseph Murano

“The gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation.
Therefore, suffer, yes. Be misunderstood, yes. Be shamed, yes. But do not be ashamed. For the joy set before you, take up your cross, follow Jesus, be shamed and despise the shame!" -- John Piper
