The wind moans softly from the lonely sea
Like the lost souls of sailors
And drowned fishermen
The waves roll in from the silent night
Rising and falling without end
Like men and empires
Becoming and dying.
The sea shares its secrets with the ice-bright stars
Timeless eyes a million light years distant
Eternal, knowing, watching
Through dark clouds flying.
All the patterns of life are sown in the restless sea
Never still, yet never changing
The face of God is sketched within the stars
The wind is sighing.
And I am but a mortal man, microscopic, insignificant
The Truth is hidden wisely from my eyes
I know nothing -
But I am trying.
