From an Ocean View

The sailors know like desperate souls

as lonely as the night

through thick and thin

on separate ends

I’m helpless in your eyes.


And my whisper shows no mercy.

And my thoughts get caught in lies,

for the ocean knows as plain as snow

in likeness as despair.


The Sun it speaks my language,

yet I haven’t got a clue.

I haven’t got a thing in life

except a point of view.


Like rock and stone; overthrown.

An hour does not matter.

On distant plains that call in vain

as if the night were still.


My thoughts could fade away;

sail on distant waves.


The road no longer holds the truth

from an ocean view.
