Heya, when I was reading the Vampirates: Tide of Terror,by Justin Somper I found a poem that really struck me, I liked it, I thought I would share it,
Mother Ocean, Father Sky,
Send this pirate to his rest,
He was amongst the best -
Set his spirit free to fly.
Brother Sun and Sister Moon
Bathe him in your balmy light,
No longer need he fight -
The one you called back far too soon.
Lighting, thunder, wind and rain,
Let his cutlass blunt and rust,
As his body turns to dust -
Free from every mortal pain.
Spring tide, neap tide, morning, night,
All things that frame our days,
Carve him out a resting place -
Where ever will his cares be light.
Creek and harbour, gulf and reef
Waters shallow, waters deep,
Grant him now enteral sleep -
And anchor us who reel with grief.
