The Lonely Boat

“What am I without you?”
The boat asked the sea.
Then begged…

Bring back the tide,
make me alive
I beseech thee.

Bring back the tide
Let me ride your waves
Toss me to and fro,
Throw me up high…
then splash me down hard
into your waiting arms.

Bring back the tide,
Pull me out of the dock!
I’d rather face the peril
of being whipped
by the mighty waves of your love
than left alone
moored in the sand along the beach
in that sand wet in tears
of anguish and grief.

About M.A.D. LIGAYA

Teacher-Writer-Lifelong Learner I have three passions - teaching, writing, and learning. I am a Filipino currently residing and teaching in South Korea. I blog and vlog the things I write. I have two websites and two YouTube channels where I publish my works in my areas of interest. I also use Wattpad and Pinterest to publish my creative works. I am into research as well. Some of my articles were presented at conferences and published in indexed-journals. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
