The Captain's Compass Story ©
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 hand briskly. The mermaid said "You must learn to trust in the one you love, for she is looking for you and has not abandoned you. 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.
