dusk till dawn




The ship sank, it wasn't strong enough for the storm
The sun disappeared in the waves and darkness covered me.
I almost drowned as I was swimming in the vast Ocean, cold, tired.
My skin soaked and wrinkled, hurt by the salt of the water.
And than it dawned to me, first like a sparkle on the surface.
The sun lit up the water in a bright, fresh orange glow,
warm and reassuring, I suddenly saw on top of the waves a yacht.
It had been close to me from dusk till dawn.
