678. The day I wanted to sail

The day I wanted to sail

With doubt,

Our boat did not start.


The day I wanted to sail

With fear,

Our boat sank when the journey

Was three minutes old.


The day I wanted to sail

With love,

God immediately jumped into our boat

And on we sailed.

Both love and I just

Slept, sang and danced in the boat.

But God did something more:

He led us all the way

With His Nectar-light.
