A Lonely Vessel
 

 



Like a lonely vessel I sail all alone,
Across this vast and empty ocean,
And back again,
to and fro I roam.

When I think there's signs of life,
I'll send the life boats out,
Only to find nothing at all in the end,
Except for fear and doubt.

This ocean is but a graveyard,
Of those glorious ships of the past,
Whatever happened to those ships,
Whatever happened? Myself, I ask.

I looked forward to peace and tranquility,
after the storm had finally passed.
But now it seems to be just me by myself,
with no other vessels left.
