Dream of a Sailor’s Soul

Written for Rememberance

Dream of a Sailor’s Soul

“My ghost appeared just like a dream
Upon a moonlit night
I came within a clear moonbeam
Appeared so clear and bright

My Moonbeam entered in and shone
Its light in my old room.
That lovely light it glistened on
My medals in the gloom.

There’s no alarms can call to arms
That man that once was me;
For I am now beyond all harms,
Since my soul was set free.

My bones they are beneath a stone
Near a chapel by the shore.
I am there but am not alone,
Near me are many more.

We did our duty in our time,
We stayed true to the end.
We fought our fight mid blood and grime:
Remember us my friend.

Memorials glisten in the sun,
The futures bright for you,
So, do accept what’s done is done
And to your dreams stay true.”
