A beautiful poetry by Keith Garrett ~♥
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
I’ve drifted across the open sea, I wait for you to find me,
In a bottle I have been placed, a message that I am alive.
You are no longer there anymore but I let you know I exist,
A thought of what you meant to me, a thought of what I once meant.
If my message gets to you yet then again how can this possibly be,
You are a memory from yesterday, I am a thought that sails the sea.
Time does not stop, It has no sympathy, it makes what is what was,
Life and all that’s within it is reduced to memories, things of yesterday.
Message in a bottle is what I am, If you find me take me for what I am,
You are forever now, I am something that will one day fade away.
