Memory is Sailing

I wanted to take you sailing
I had begun to think of how to do it
You loved sailing and I wanted to take you
We talked about it before
The ocean and the sand
Shells and gulls
But. . .
Then we told each other I love you
Our last words
Our last moments before
I can only dream of sailing with you
I pray that Heaven has big blue oceans
and you are sailing

I'm sailing away,
Set an open course for the virgin sea,
'Cause I've got to be free,
Free to face the life that's ahead of me,
on board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard,
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore,
And I'll try, Oh Lord I'll try, to carry on

I look to the sea,
Reflections in the waves spark my memory,
Some happy, some sad,
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had,
We lived happily forever, so the story goes,
But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head,
They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said,
They said come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me lads,
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me,
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me baby,
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me

I thought that they were angels, but much to my surprise,
We climbed aboard their starship, we headed for the skies
come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me lads
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me...

I too pray that heaven has blue oceans or something even more beautiful. When my first wife died a friend told me that heaven is a bit more glorious because she is there. I think that might be more accurate then I think that it is. Either way heaven is surly a most beautiful place.
