To the Sailor Beloved

Twilight on the horizon
Red clouds in the sky
The myth tells the sailor
It will be his delight
The night was calm and peaceful
The day was beautiful and bright
The myth was truthful to the sailor
It was his delight
The next day was quite the opposite
The sky was red as flames
They myth tells the sailor
Take warning on this day
The storm clouds rolled in
The sea began to rage
The boat was tossed from side to side
Not a swell showed any grace
The sea was like the devil
His scorn felt in every wave
To the sailor it told him
Your life will not be saved
The sailor fought for hours
His boat and life to save
The fury of the sea
Gave him no lead-way
Then a wave of great size
Hit the boat with strength
Causing it to capsize
The sailor trapped within
With fear in his heart
As his boat did sink
The sailor thought of his family
He would never again see
With little air remaining
In his casket of metal and steel
The sailor uttered his dying words
To his family he loved so dear
“I may not be here with you
For I am dead and gone 
But in my death remember
My love for you will live on”
