An Explorer’s End

Let my heart be swallowed by the sea
The mourning of a crashed wave
As foam memories drift ashore.

Lost child,
Searching for a new home,
Did you find your hearth
In a Brazilian bay?
Did you find your peace
Along an Ivory Coast?

Carrack casket carry your soul,
The eternal Atlantic wails,
Let freedom ring forever.

Your blue tide galleons remember your dreams,
Oh the places you’ve gone,
Oh the places you’ve seen,
The swan song of a traveler,
A tune hummed by those who followed.

You saw the world throughout your life,
Now in death see the rest.
