In the still of the night

I am sailing

Upon the ocean of my dreams

Where there is no place

To hide emotions deep

Across waters so blue

I sail to be with you

And far across horizons wide

In the still of the night

I pray my love to be safe

To be guided by a loving hand

I sail upon my ship of hope

For a better tomorrow there will be

I sail upon my ship of dreams

Deeper into the night

Once I sailed my ship of light

Within the morning sun so bright

I will be filled with sweet delight

Dreams analogous to a ship upon an ocean, how intriguing. I guess our lives could be described, as Arthur Miller put it, as little boats looking for safe harbours. Fitting.

To a sailor, nothing compares to walk up to the bow and look beyond the horizon, seeing a little golden island there with the eyes of his soul.
The wind can give the most soft of kisses.

and your sails billowing full....
running rigging we all must pull
but may you never ever have to tack.....
