Dreaming of a boat

on this dark shore
I lift my eyes
across the abyss
to You;
worried about the broken shells
that speckle my path
to you with light and pain,
aware of the distance
I must travel,
anxious about getting in over my head
I remain transfixed
drinking in the light
and dreaming of a boat
that won't require me to row
or even to step in.
