The poem is below.


From sunlight to dawn
from shadows of the sea
where the ancient wind calls me
I could see what I need
to help me breath 
is the Love of my true God 
to help me stand on my own two feet, 

Oh, the ringing sounds of bells
that are out on the shores
they sound that drifts in that cold winters air 
is sharp to my ears
like a yell for help, 
the old pipe organs a sound 
right out to me like it is saying goodbyes 
through the night,
I try so hard to keep my faith and hope
on this cold winters storm
the night without so much fright
that everything is going to be alright, 
like a tiny and translucent shell 
catching sunlight in the summer time waves 
that moves along into the breeze
that sets my mind at ease  
that God is watching over me, 

Soft and gentle, tender and so frail, is the touch 
of true Love my heart reveal from heaven above, 
A beautiful light pouring through petals of the night 
musical that sounds so sweet at sea in summers breeze, 
Where I gave my heart to thee who Loves me.
