~Ocean~

Die out of this world I must,

So wrap me

In the arms of the ocean I love

Let me breathe my last

As I bury my face

Close against the chest

Of her powerful waves

Let the sound

Of her belly laugh

Or her lions’ roar

Be the sound that lulls me to sleep

For the very last time.

She is my soul.

She completes me.

To die away from her

To die watching from afar

No, please…

Let me die

With my love

With the one who gave my life

Meaning

And purpose

Time with her…

And time without her…

Thoughts of her

Filled my hours

And my days…

And now, my life is complete.

Oh yes,

Lay me down in the arms of my lifes’ love

And when you think of the ocean

When you see her

Or hear her

I will be with you

Once again.


Lovingly dedicated to Captain Robin Walbridge and Crewmember Claudene Christian who lost their lives faithfully serving the HMS Bounty.

~Sail!

And when the final chapter is written

Let it read, simply

That I sailed with great passion…

…into the raging seas

…and the chilling mists,

Where the book would finally close.

But oh!

How I did sail!!


Lovingly dedicated to the memory of the HMS Bounty who sailed her final voyage into Hurricane Sandy, October 29th, 2012.
