Successful Crossing?

A smile ferries me
across storms, rocks, and eddies
which might capsize me.

Will I reach the shore?
A jagged course line impedes
my being certain.

Caught in the pretense
my life will turn out okay,
I smile at the world.

Judy, I am putting this poem into the personal notebook with all my thoughts of my past journey with the MS boat - wished that I had seen this during the voyage as I would have shared it with my co-sailors
