The sea was calm when we started our journey,
The mirthful waves kissing the shores;
The sun’s rays charming the soothing blue waters,
The soft murmur of waves on the oars.
Tightening the mast when wind was low
Loosened it down against the fiery gale;
Setting the rudder at a promising pace,
We surely knew how to sail.
Time stood still as we sailed
Moments cherished forever;
The sun’s last glowing rays
Fell over our shadowy figures.
Twilight drew on, as seagulls went back,
The waves lashing on the edges;
The sails feeling the ghastly winds,
Swaying the mast as she rages.
Night grew on as the sea enraged loud,
No more calm like when we began;
The waters, carrying over the deck,
The mast broken, rudders were also done.
The waves gulped us in its monstrous fangs,
Our journey ended in pain;
All left in the end were the remnants
Of the memories wrecked heaven.
