My dearest God
may you let this crashing ocean come to peace
for I am at a loss
at how I will ever survive on this crooked boat at sea.
My, had I known sooner
may I have never left my peace
for my Mrs. waits patiently
at home with our lovely kids of three.
My prayer to the moon and stars
may I fight for life in these stormy seas abroad
for the day I return home
That I may tell her tales
of how I weathered past a God.
