Sweet Abigail

Sweet Abigail

Tugging at the ropes, yearning to set sail
A little boat, emblazoned Sweet Abigail.
Looking at each wave crashing at her side
As an adventure she eagerly awaits to ride.

To the novice captain standing up on the pier,
The tumbling tide brings worry, doubt and fear.
Never having navigated the rough waters ahead,
She’d rather keep the boat at dockhouse instead.

What if Abigail gets lost in the ocean so vast?
What about sharks, she just isn’t that fast.
What if the rocks scratches against her coat of pink?
What if there is a wreck, causing her to sink?

The captain was reprimanded for her hesitation,
But how could she risk her precious creation?
As she stood there, cursing her indecision,
Bittersweet tears soon clouded her vision.

She thought of all the things Sweet Abigail would miss,
The tide’s sleepy lullaby, the ocean’s salty kiss.
The laughing of seagulls, downy clouds floating up high.
Sunbeams glittering on the water, raining down from the sky.

The captain summoned up all of her strength and might,
And boarded the tiny boat, who cooed in delight.
The two began a journey the captain will never regret,
As she and Sweet Abigail sailed into the fading sunset
