Cast away



Blinded by sorrow
Mist surrounds my tearful eyes
If I could only see tomorrow
That would be my prize

What luck to be cast away
Left to the mercy of the ocean
In this tiny boat I sway
Feeling every sickly motion

As day light turns to dark
My hope quickly fades
With everywhere looking stark
I live amongst the shades

My heart like a solemn drum
Beats to a rhythm I can’t keep
Along with a mournful hum
Comes tunes that cannot sleep

But at last the clouds did part
And the moon did touch my face
My eyes did start
As my heart began to race

For in the not too distance
Salvation I could see
Rowing at my hearts insistence
I knew home I had to be
