1. If you were lost at sea with only one song, what would you choose?
Queen- Don’t Stop me Now
2. You take one photograph to pin up next to your bunk, what would it be?
It would be a picture of my nieces and my little brother.
3. You have a copy of one poem to see you through the storms, what would it be?
And Nothing is Ever as Perfect as You Want It to Be- Brian Pattern
You lose your love for her and then
It is her who is lost,
And then it is both who are lost,
And nothing is ever as perfect as you want it to be.
In a very ordinary world
A most extraordinary pain mingles with the small routines,
The loss seems huge and yet
Nothing can be pinned down or fully explained.
You are afraid. If you found the perfect love
It would scald your hands,
Rip the skin from your nerves,
Cause havoc with a computed heart.
Everything you touched became a wound.
You tried to mend what cannot be mended,
You tried, neither foolish nor clumsy,
To rescue what cannot be rescued.
You failed, a
And now she is elsewhere,
And her night and your night
Are both utterly drained.
How easy it would be
If love could be brought home like a lost kitten
Or gathered in like strawberries,
How lovely it would be;
But nothing is ever as perfect as you want it to be.
