Oh, William Sails - Poem by Saint Eule

Oh William, Oh William how though vessell be,
Gale force winds shred thy sails morbid sea.
Return galant voyager to the harbour rest.
Put down the anchor next to the gully nest.

The angels are sewing new sails as we speak,
A carpenter makes a mast of the finest teak.
Oh William, Oh william no words can ever say,
Let thy vessell rest and then sail again I pray.

No one has the answers to the mysteries of the sea,
The wind sometimes will take us where we do not want to be.
Oh William, Oh William the tides sometimes hold us back,
Your sail will soon be ready keep the keel on the track.

Time you spent together on the voyage of this life,
Will always be remembered all the joys and the strife.
Oh William, Oh William another voyage till thy eternal rest,
When your ready to pull up anchor, know you did your very best.

When I drove on down the highway and was thinking
of you today,
All I could see was a ship needing sails and angels
sewing away.
