Passed Me By

As I floated along on my old log
I saw your boat pass me by today
Your sails full as you rode the wind
I traveled opposite slow and steady

You seemed so light so happy
so free and at your ease
Guiding your boat with one hand
holding her lovingly with the other

You did not notice me at all
as your boat passed me by
How I wish I could have flown
but both wings are broken you see

So I’m left here alone on my own
floating free on my borrowed log
Watching your happy family
pass me by on the deep blue sea
