'Ship of Dreams'

‘SHIP OF DREAMS’

There’s a sacred spot,
In the ocean deep and wide,
Where fading dreams
And lost hopes reside

Calm nights and sunny days,
Under tumbling ocean waves
All quiet remembrance
Of their stealing graves

Let the bell toll loud
Let the message ring true
Their journey’s end,
A prayer for me and you

That some day
A mighty ship will sail,
Invincible and free,
To carry our dreams
Of all that might be

To some safe harbour,
Where hope can reside,
Above sacred waters
And anchor beside
