TITLE: The Given Shore

There is the shore
That remains a constant
As you set sail
Upon an unknown course...

Questions you may have --
Dreams may fill your soul --
Thoughts of adventure
May bring to you new pleasure
As they displace the old...

Upon this journey
There will come
To you a reminder
That the given shore
Still awaits you there
For
You may set your sail --
You may tip the wind --
You may cross
The ocean blue
And breathe the balmy air --
But
You will
As God ordains
Always return
To the given shore
When your journey
Is through --
For it is that
The voyage
Is certainly
A worthwhile
Pursuit for the eager soul
And will present
A unique blessing
To you...

Just keep in mind
That when the trip
Is over and tiredness
Presents itself to you
You will return
Once again
To the given shore
Across the ocean blue...

It is the place
That you know
Will welcome
You with open arms
After your journey
To a foreign place
Where you have viewed
Its many charms...

Keep in mind
That the given shore
Rings a bell
Of home and a joy
That only it can bring --
For the given shore
Is certainly the place
Where the soul
Finds words to sing...

The soul may sing --
The heart may melt --
The tomorrows
May become sweet --
The todays
May become
The treasure
Of the voyage
As memories
You do repeat...

Triumph will
Be discovered
When you have returned
To the given shore
And it will become
The very reason
That for the sandy respite
You do yearn
More and more...

Interesting poem. We always return to cherished hopes and places as they bring comfort and joy. I seem to get this idea from your poem.
