Long ago, there was a
captain who had self professed that his life, love and lady
were the sea. It has been said that he would never
give his heart to another. Why
had been a speculation of many. But it was felt by some
that years ago he had fallen deeply in love with a beautiful
woman. They spent many days together before he had to leave
port. And when the
day came that he had to go,
he vowed he would one day
return for her. He sailed the seas and braved mighty
storms and very rough seas. The only thing that kept him going
was the very thought of her. However, when he returned for
her, she was gone. He searched for months, leaving no stone
unturned. But alas, he could not find her. His heart was
broken. He vowed never to love again. He climbed upon what he
felt now was his only true love, his mighty ship. As time went
on, his heart turned even colder. "How could she have gone? I
gave her my solemn word I would return"
he thought to himself. That very night he heard a
splash against the bow of the ship. He thought nothing of it
at first; perhaps it was a dolphin or the natural rustle of
the tide. Again he heard a splash;
this time he went to investigate. Just over the bow
of the ship was a mermaid,
and the sound that he heard was her tail fin splashing
the water in order
to get his attention "I have this for you" she said
softly and opened her hand to reveal a metal object of some
sort. He reached to retrieve it from her but she took back her
The mermaid said "You must learn to trust in the one
you love, for she is looking for you and has not abandoned
She sent me to find you and give you this. Use it and
you will find your way back to her. Startled at this turn of
events, he tried once again to retrieve the item from the
mermaid’s hand. "She
loves you and waits for you on shore…go to her, this heart
compass will guide you". As he reached for the compass the
second time, she moved her outstretched arm closer to him
"Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart" the Captain
said. He took the compass from her and she smiled sweetly back
at him. In a blink of an eye she was gone. The captain held
the compass to his heart, and like magic, the ship took sail
on its own. He stood steadfast on the bow of the ship, and
what took days to travel to,
but felt like an instant, was the sight of land just
ahead. The ship dropped anchor. At first he thought he was
dreaming, but he was not, for in the distance he saw her
running toward him. They embraced. He held her for a very long
time and asked for no explanation. None was needed. They were
together and that is all that mattered. Some say the captain
and his lady sail the seas to this very day. Others say they
grew old in each other’s arms. Whichever you believe, never
forget that true love will always find its way back to you.
