I stopped to daydream and 20 years passed me by

I waited all afternoon for you.
And I'm sure you that you forgot.
I was going to ask you to try harder this time,
but that day I walked home alone.
Something in a breeze caught my eye.
A scrap of paper of danced lazily around in the air,
And I wanted to catch it as it fell to the ground.
I even imagined it was a note from you to say you missed your son,
So I closed my eyes,
stopped to day dream,
and 20 years passed me by.

Points to anyone who can find the hidden image...!

A ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas... Very fitting and beautifully subtle! I love the words accompanying the image, as well as the mysterious almost-interaction between the boy and the figures in the image. Makes you wonder what's going on in both stories. Beautiful!

Wow, this is just... gorgeous
It seems like a big story is being told in the work
The environment looks really detailed and hmm 'alive' (like, I really want go into that painting!)
The hands are also a very beautiful detail!

It seems almost redundant to say WOW! Silly to repeat how incredible your art is.... I can identify with every aspect of the scene... A beauty, sadness and jubilation that is hard to find anywhere else. A spectacular capture!
