Travelers Of The Sea - Poem by Roland Ruiz

The farther west we travel
The farther west we'll be

Among the ocean schooners
Beyond the endless sea

The farther west we travel
The more at rest we'll be

For here the sea is master
For all eternity

The sea has songs of mystery
That beckon us to go

And only we can follow
The songs the sea bestow

Forever we must follow
The oceans of the deep

The timeless seas of hollow
Forever must we seek
