Before heading out to sea…

Seagull in flight

he searched for you, high and low
before heading out to sea
from the white cliffs of Dover
to the shores of Tripoli

in a way, he felt much lighter
as winds of change made haste
all you left behind were vapor trails
now you’ve sped up on your pace

once he caught a glimpse of your smile
in a fleeting mirror as you passed
one day you’ll walk into his eyes
then be back at home at last…
