Its perilous, dangerous, intriguing but at the same time a learning experience with the beauty that surrounds you….
Guiding Star way up high,
You bring the vibe I can’t deny.
Filling intrigue in tempest tossed,
To fulfill a wish when hope’s lost.
For we sail through life’s perilous sea,
Seeking adventure in life’s mystery.
For we learn from other sailors as well,
People like us who their stories tell.
Like a wave to a beach you splash away,
Anthem of happiness through night and day.
Diamond encrusted reflecting the sun,
Satin ribbon shimmering moonlight fun.
Bejeweled rapturous with unspoken waves,
Numerous treasures hidden in caves.
With stalactite pleasures filling the hole,
Enticing beautifying enhancing the soul.
With echoes of roars that fill the heart,
The sea of life on the beach does part.
Runs to achieve in ferocity,
Forgets calm quiet sagacity.
That is the beauty of the sun,
Unique, precise and full of fun.
Breathing heat to the world around,
Riotous and vibrant in colour surround.
Sea of life, the path for me,
You give the reason in this mystery.
For everything around has a meaning you see,
Something to learn, a purpose for me.
Guiding Star, the Sailor’s decree,
You give the pathway to travel for free.
Through tides, and storms wind and rain,
You guide us through when life’s in vain.
May I dislodge the wedge of that clan,
Causing tears to the travelling man.
Creator be my lover and my guide,
Although in reality I feelings hide.
For today I beg I truly ask,
Help me complete the decreed task.
May it evoke the dock for the wandering sailor,
With his family make the new family trailer.
Master of sea, keeper of heart,
You are the reason I make this art.
For I am but an instrument,
Giving the world this condiment.
Each word and verse is your decree,
Giving me knowledge harnessed for free.
Like a sail to a ship you guide me around,
With love and happiness you me surround.
May I captain a good and decent destiny,
Be a blessing to all big and tiny.
For I am at the mercy of the sea,
Have to conform and live in this mystery.
Guiding star, Constant at sea,
Give me a pathway for all to see.
For you have blest me with life godsend,
And given me more than what I contend.
May I walk through this mortal portend,
When lightening strikes a ship to end.
For it is you Dear Creator who has to decree,
You are the master of my mortal Captaincy.
Never will I sail without you love,
I always look up to the One Above.
For all the goodness you give me at sea,
Thank you Creation for greatest power in me.
