A Sailor's Goodbye
There’s a beautiful girl who waits by the sea,
Drowning in her unconditional love for me,
I see no way out of this eternal black,
Please watch over her, I won’t be coming back.
Lord I beg of you, don’t let her fade away,
Don’t let her days fade into an endless grey.
Even though I’ll be gone, her life will still be there,
Tell her I’ll be with her in her every breath of air.
Lord please forgive me for all that I have done,
And thank you for the sea, Lord, the moon, the stars, and the sun.
Thank you for my life, Lord, my wife, my love,
We will embrace again, only this time up above.
Please take me to your kingdom upon this stormy night,
Away from cold water crests and lightning that strikes bright.
But don’t forget the girl with the ocean deep blue eyes,
For I hope to see her again, someday, somewhere in the
