The Power of the Sea

CRASHING waves... SMASHING seas...
Bringing sailors to their knees.
As they struggle to save their lives
Hoping and praying, help arrives.

The stormy seas as black as coal,
Preventing the sailors from reaching their goal.
Battered, bruised, still he fights...
For family, wife, son and daughter
For lives depend on his return
Staring ahead, into the dead of night.
Rocking and rolling as they try to stand...
Hoping against hope, that they soon reach land.

Bleary eyed from lack of sleep.
Down in there cabins huddled like sheep.
As they're rocking and rolling down beneath
Weary sailors above, resist with gritted teeth.

Hours later, as the storm starts to dissipate,
It leaves a calm tranquil sea in it wake.
As sunshine breaks through the parted clouds
The veteran sailors know the battle is over, and they have won...
But yet they know that other storms are yet to come...
