Water Water Everywhere

Rating: 3.3
Water Water Everywhere

Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink
That is of course until this lovely ship does sink

There is nothing to compare to a sunrise while at sea
Oh how I've missed those moments special just to me

Sunrises on the ocean with no one else around
Seems to show God's near us without a single sound

Sunsets are special too, dull moments they are not
Beautiful red colors emitting hues not too soon forgot

Night time on the ocean brings many things anew
On moonless skies it seems so cold with just a hint of dew

Of course those starry nights are quite a sight to see
The beauty of those twinklers was fashioned just for me

I'll always miss the wonders the stars have brought to me
And when I die I'd like my ashes spread far, far out to sea
