The 22-Year-Old Male Who Writes Lyrical Poetry: 'A Message In A Bottle'
A Message In A Bottle
To my friends, family, lovers, sisters and brothers - A goodbye to those I leave behind.
May this message in a bottle,
Be swept ashore to you safely –
Know that this castaway,
Will be with you again shortly.
I’ll come back around,
For the ones who mean the most.
Anchor myself to the ones I love.
Maybe together one day,
We can all get lost at sea,
And one day,
Our minds be set free…..
Because I might be alive,
But somewhere else.
Lost at sea,
And can’t find myself.
Those waves of tragedy,
Have taken me away…..
No easier a way to say,
But only for the meantime.
Find me at the edge of the bay.
My heart in hand from the chest in the ocean’s cave.
Watching over the horizon.
Awaiting my long lost companions.
Remember and never forget,
Those times we kept well spent.
But remember instead;
That this time was kept well spent.
This time was kept well spent.....
