Toy Boat

The toy boat sailed as swift as that wind blew,
Past where our eyes could see: and so did you

The days of toys that brought your eyes to life,
The laughing voices – one of them was you –

To see your prize possession safe again,
Us racing down the river bank with you

A boat that sits up in the attic now
Past magazines in boxes – quite a few –

A boat, a toy, a piece of who we were,
Alone, but not forgotten
Just
Like
You
