Solace For M lady Helen Unknown


The surging tides that ebb and flow
I watch them come I watch them go.

The rolling waters of the sea,
have freedom now denied to me.
But she still calls me constantly.

My only mistress was the sea
‘til I asked you to marry me.
The only way you would agree
I must say farewell to the sea.

I turned my back upon the sea
settled ashore reluctantly.
My love for you has anchored me.
You feared it understandably
but I still miss her terribly.

I watch the boats go out to sea
where in my heart I long to be.
I’ve done all that you asked of me
.Its only when we disagree
That I come here unhappily
to seek the solace of the sea.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
