Glowing morning with love on deck
Headed out to share a small boat
No warning signs, all appeared well
On calm seas we went afloat.
Forever friends, odd first date
Only two seafarers knew
Anything happens out at sea
As a couple, we would get though.
Suddenly waves rocked our boat
Looming storm clouds overhead
Sheets of rain covered our frames
Sights unseen, alive or dead.
Perilous waves struck the bow
He manned the boat, fighting tide
Rod in hand, a bite would come
Going along for the ride.
I locate a quiet cove
Faithful partner, hold on tight
He heeds my word, heading north
Drop my line and get a bite.
Breaking clouds, sun peeking through
Pull on my line, two for me
Docked at last, happened so fast
We knew what dinner would be.
