Every boat rocks.

            Every captain knows about the shocks.

            Every boat does roll.


    Every captain knows these things happen before

            he/she reaches

            the goal, the docks.

            Sometimes, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean,

            there can be a commotion.

   There can be problems with the crew too.  Yes, it's true.

     There can be big waves.

     Captains, their ship will try to save.

     The water can be cold.  

     They will not fold.

     They, as strong as gold.

     Captains weather the storm until they get to

     a place and a space safe and warm.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

A symbolic poem about relationships.  No relationship is perfect, what matters is how you handle things.  No, this is not about ME!
