I dream of those that went and came
...But not of those who came and went
And I can't help but wonder whether
Those boats had any adventures
Or if they will or even can in the future...

The tide comes and goes, no longer embracing them
Their masts stand still, they've forgotten how to reach for the wind
Paint peeling, hulls marked by time
Stories held in the silence beside the waves

They once crossed horizons, where sea met sky
Now they rest in the quiet of forgotten shale
Shadows of journeys linger, murmuring through the wood
Muffled memories of salt and sun
