A Sailor's Prayer
This night I pray to God above
Please protect the ones I love
May my course be true and the winds never fail
In this world of cold gray steel
Let it not trap what inside I feel
As I travel across the sea
Please don't feel remorse for me
For this is the road I have chosen to take.
May I leave good memories in my wake
And when I finally set ashore
I will have experienced more than ever before
There might be times when the sea is rough
But it can also be as gentle as a dove.
Till the day I lower my sails
I know one thing that will never fail
A family's love for each other.
