Severed

We once knit ropes that bound us together As two ships tied to a tether Called each other from the sea Ignored the truth of destiny Each storm weathered meant more damage Naively thought that I could manage Sure your goodness was filling my skull Unaware of the cracks in my hull It took a first mate, tried and true To see the damage it would do Waves tossed, he nearly drowned, see, Loosing the rope, tight around me He risked his neck to rescue mine I railed against him at the time Yet from that day, spent many an hour Reflecting on his quiet power Two ships that weren't meant to be bound Two ships that almost ran aground Stubborn, I had to keep you around Still pray one day that you'll be found But now, two ships with severed ropes I'm free of you, I've got new hopes I wish you well, I hope you find A harbor True, a harbor Kind.
