The Anna Bianca (Cargo Ship circa 1920)
Into the Bed of Waves
Never to gasp another breath
Twas never meant to be
Only for a brief timeTo never see your face
Hear your sweet words
Eyes that saw into my soul
Beneath the surface I fall
Every heartache slipping away
Once happy and peaceful
Fairytale ending no more
Water so dark and cold
Another poor lost soul
Visions flashing in my mind
Escape so close
Save me before I am gone

My babygirl, (she doesn’t feel she is right now), has a pseudonym that describes her perfectly, even if she doesn’t know it.
This ship left harbor with an innocent cargo, headed for a near destination. A coastal ship, she was taking soap for her trading partners and allies in Europe. My Love, with her innocent cargo did the same. I’m sure at the time they both thought, everything was ship-shape and would be okay.
The AnnaB ran into a Gale not very far from shore, and lost her steering, and sank. My AnnaB did the same, unfortunately, I think I was the Gale.
She sits 50 meters of water, not far from the coast. They claimed she wasn’t worth salvaging.
This is where I draw the line. She is not only worth salvaging, she is the most important vessel of her day. Her lines are sleek, her hull is strong, and she was built to carry a load that many ships couldn’t. She carried much needed supplies to others, that’s what she was designed to do. Her sinking was tragic, but being left on the bottom is unfathomable.
I sit on the oceans surface, I have dived to the AnnaB, she is a sturdy but broken ship, and I will not rest until she shines in the sun, the beaming vessel she was destined to be.
