she glimpsed heaven

The savage storm
How it rocked her through
Depending on faith
And a few slats of wood
She waited for this rescue
In her dreams his face, vivid
In her dreams, she grasped
Reaching for his hands
The familiar strength
Of his fingers and the voice
Grave, yet smiling
What she would give
To hear those words
To feel him close
No fear or despair.
She lost time
Caged in this boat
With no harbor in sight
She lost time
Within this fence
Adrift on the sea
And no life support
No stars or glimpse of heaven
To guide her way
On this dark and endless night.
