And I Was Alone
Sailing through unknown waters
I look upon the deep blue sea
No one was there, but only I
I called out to the depths…
–a soul, mournful cry.
Watching the crests rise up and down
Breaking to whitecaps all around
I marveled at the great expanse…
which no one saw
–but only I.
Mountain tops treat me to pristine tranquility
A beauty which no one has ever seen
A fisherman’s boat far below stirs me
To think what forces
attracts me to the sea….
The ship is big and teeming with life
Like raging water on troubled shores
The beauty outside arrests my soul
But alone was I
–and there was none no more.
