Some boats set out on voyage never to return to their home port. The captain, officers and deckhands, unaware of their fate, do not look back as their loved ones cheer and wave from the quayside.
This vessel may be lost. The memory of the sailors will haunt their families and loved ones back home.
It is a sad tale. Yet it is a story that has been written countless times.
Watch those white sails carefully.
Yours may be the last. Wish them safe passage.
