The Ship of Dreams

The ship of dreams
But not for long
Or so it seems
She lived a long, long time ago
A labor of love
Broken down by foe

Limited time
Limited opportunities
An unsinkable ship
Running rampant with abundant mutiny

At first calm precision, moving fast
A stroke of luck that wouldn’t last
Feel the pain of those who were ordained
And watched their families drift away
Supplying a pseudo smile
Knowing they won’t survive another day

Listen to the Hymn "Now the Day is Over" by Sabine Baring-Gould and Sir Joseph Barnby
As YOUR final day comes to an end
Who would you have become?
How will you be remembered?
Details… thoughts… that no one else could or will ever grasp,
As you do in that moment
Deaths as your lungs become consumed by the strength of the abyss.
She lies as your memorial everlasting.
