Victoria – Part II. Thirty-Years Ago

I drifted ashore
Shipwrecked on a desert isle
My skies were empty

I scuttled to work
Like a human hermit crab
Borrowing a shell

Then the darkness passed
For years I tried to find her
Vague odd stories

Sales Executive
Living in California
Medical Company

She had a calling
Bring Jesus to Arabia
A missionary

Sick in a wheelchair
Married to an Egyptian
Some said she had died

I quit after that
I lost hope of finding her
Married sick, or dead
