Poem: “When My Ship Crashed”

When My Ship Crashed

Not so long ago,
When my ship crashed
On the night side of that far planet
Held down by injuries and wreckage
In the darkness you came with your light
Smiling, You stayed
Though no human life was near
I was tended to.

They came for me
Finding one they thought dead
And brought me back
Where voices and sirens
Colors and shapes
Bodies and buildings
And bright gleaming lights
Hid You away.

I remember how You stayed with me
When I was thought dead.
