Waves

"O to be upon the sea
Beyond this race of fools
Repair the damage heal the pain
Revisit memory’s pools

This race we run begins at birth
And ends within our graves
I need to stop and find some peace
And rest upon the waves

Great winds speak softly to my sails
For I am at your will
Take up the tiller plot my course
Whilst I my strength refill
