Just looking into the waves...

An Old Sailor’s Time

By: Fee



Oh the sea-wind will capture my spirit

The waves froth will wash these old bones

The seagulls will sing me a sweet hymn

To the soft music of old timber groans


The mermaids will carry home my body

To the depths of the sea I so love

I’ll rest forever on a bed of wild seaweed

Oblivious to the wild world above


The small fish may tickle me whiskers

Now and then if they care for a bite

I won’t mind for I’ll sing a sea shanty

To lull me to eternal sleep every night


So let the fiddle play a slow tune

Drop that red white flag to half mast

I lived a good life with no regrets

I have come a long way from my past…
