I can't even remember when I wrote this one, but it fits my thoughts about the seas and cruising.
When I look back on olden days
Or dream of times to be,
I know, somehow, in every age
Men sought the surging sea.
When summer burns or winter chills,
Our thoughts drift far away,
We seek a ship with shining sails
Just waiting on the bay.
When work is too much to endure
Or sadness makes us slaves,
Then we must lift our lives and find
Relief upon the waves.
Who can resist the ocean's lure.
It calls us night and day,
To cruise upon the boundless deep
Where whales and dolphins play.
We walk the decks and view the stars
And feel the light salt breeze.
The ship rides high on churning tides,
The heartbeat of the seas.
There are many things to do
That occupy our time,
But cruising with the ones we love
Will make our lives sublime.
