    “Sailors pray,
    For fair winds and a following sea

    The smell of salt in the air,
    The feel of their skin as it’s touched by the spray

    An albatross soaring above,
    Dolphins in the ship’s wake at play

    To witness a work of art that only God can create,
    The sunset at the end of day

    At night a million stars in the sky,
    Safe anchorage in an islands lee

    When the time comes to die as for all it must,
    To awake in Sailors Heaven where nothing ever rusts

    And always there would be,
    Fair winds and a following sea”
