"Nightwatch evermore they keep / At the bottom of the sea / At the windows far away / But the lost and left shall be / Found in glory so they say"

On the Bridge at Break of Day


Drifting lightly on the ocean

Underneath is dark and deep

Up and down a gentle motion

Far above where dead men sleep

Dappled sun descends serenely

I can hear the widows weep

Here where fate is felt so keenly


Nightwatch evermore they keep

At the bottom of the sea

At the windows far away

But the lost and left shall be

Found in glory so they say


May there be a place for me

That I might their victory

Savor with them then I pray

Over death the enemy

From the windows far away

From the bottom of the sea

On the bridge at break of day

Beautifully done. I loved your imagery...Dappled sun descends serenely...nice.

Stephen or Steve if I may call you that, this is the type of poem that fills my heart and soul with the call of the sea once more. As a Maritimer and past mariner this poem speaks to me in so many ways and the ship sailng is a marvellous touch. Good to have you back.
