Neptune’s Tide

Though the rain seeps quietly into our hearts

It eventually floods our soul with tears

And all the currents we’ve swum against

Become an ocean of realised fears

 

Now bleak is the sky that once guided our strokes

Unknown waters is all the future we know

Whether waves that drown or keep us afloat

It’s a life that on us Neptune must bestow

 

Yet faith can remove the blanket of pain

That causes within us those ripples of woe

So we can swim towards that distant life

With the hope of calmer seas tomorrow
