THE CAPTAIN

He's still out there 
the stars can see
More than memories 
what's yet to be
Your melancholy 
turned to muse
No, not forsaken
there's still a fuse
Ignite the flame
and fan belief
Between the lines
beyond the grief
A lonely sailor
just off your shore
He has returned
heart aches for more
And more and more and more
He aches for more
More of you!

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a song about possibilities, even when hope is gone. Maybe just beyond where you can see there still abides a love that's true. A love that hasn't forgotten. A love that's trying to make its way back to you. Is there more than melancholy memories?

This is a good one. My husband and I are going on a trip. We are going to do the great Loop. Which is a boat trip in the intercoastal waterways of the United States of America eastern part up, going through New York, to Chicago and back down the Mississippi River to where we live in Florida. My husband has been a Captain for years. He is known as Captain Bly. We are doing it together so neither of has to be alone. I am the island girl who gets to go with her man. Great lyric.

Chance, I like the imagery you presented here, plus I myself wade into the sea, and romantacize sailor/life at sea/associated myths. But I'm touched by a buoy of hope that nestles in the harbor, hoping that love is as near on the shore, and just not fading wisps on the horizon.D.R.M.F.

Also line "fan belief" reminded me of gospel account, where one of the apostles (Peter?) says to The Christ ("The Annointed One" Gr.) help me add to my belief. D.R.M.F
