Rowing backwards in fog

It's difficult,
on days like this,
when I can't see very far ahead
-- or even far behind.
I feel I'm rowing backwards,
craning my neck to see what's coming,
and probably missing
some important destination.
Help me have faith
to keep on rowing,
strength to pull these heavy oars,
and trust that you'll await me
at the journey's end.
