Ferry master

Take my Danake and guide me from this place.

Leave no thoughts of me, not even a trace.


Where love was once relished and now is lost,

Where the sun used to shine, now freezes like frost.


The voices I held dear now fade away,

The vibrance of life is gone and now faded to grey.


Take me to a place where the old souls stay,

Someplace that’s dark and far away.


Let those who live continue their fight,

And for those of us lost, get drawn into the night.


Toil and row for I have paid my way,

To my final destination where I may finally lay.


Ya-sas

      Thank you for the comment and visit. In my mind, the traveller made it to his final resting place. Thamks again for the visit.

      This is a sad but beautiful poem. I can't help hoping that the traveller finds some peace and even happiness at the end of the journey.

      You managed to capture the sadness and acceptance of reality, and even the total loss of interest in life, of a person moving on after the loss of a relished love.

      Thank you Gypsy, because it was a cryptic boat ride. Thanks again for the visit.

      A dark and mysterious and poetic. Gave me the imagery of a boat rolling down the River Styx.
