Straining my neck to peer beyond the next engulfing wave,
The surf swelling-it doesn’t look like I’ll be saved.
Chains wrapped ’round my head and down,
I’m sure my debris will not be found.
Awaiting rescue here another day I paddle,
Around the sinking feeling that all are lost.
When will the dream be over,
And the salvage show the priceless cost.
Understanding now I won’t reach that distant shore,
I really don’t want to go there anymore.
My wish is that I had remained forever by your side,
Together we could have fought the rising tide.
Forever my love will be around you,
My love, don’t let the sorrow drown you.
I humbly dedicate this poem to all the lost, lonely and grieving of flight 370…may you find peace—
