• Ships

    From Ilya Shambat@21:1/5 to All on Sat Aug 20 21:04:06 2022
    Ships will dock for a while and set out on high seas,
    Ships will dock for a while - and through storms and through fear
    They will lay once again on the course without cease
    To return once again in half year.

    All return but the best and most loyal of friends,
    All return but the most devoted ladies,
    All return but the ones on whom heart most depends
    I have no trust in fate, in myself even less faith.

    But I’d like to believe that this is not the end,
    That someday we'll no longer burn ships in despair.
    I of course will return - full of deeds full of friends
    I of course will return - it won't be half a year.
