funny how life takes us in streams

floating this way and that

toward the shore and then back to the middle

waves come and go in the form of love

loss

sometimes one in the same

i remember how you looked at me

had planned on proposing to me

and told me you knew how you'd do it

i still wonder what you'd planned

and if you'd done something different

for her

not that it particularly matters

as i'm sailing

more smoothly now than ever before

i saw you perched on an island

in the not so far away distance

you and your new family

two boys and a girl

i look at my sailboat

small but steady-built and so very

wonderfully empty

just my captain and i

swiftly traveling past your island

on a much different route

toward a pink sunset filled with gulls

and smells of the ocean.
