I have wondered at times what was felt
When those who sail the oceans so blue
Happen to fall victim to disaster
When the moment comes and life is through.
We know of the television remake
Of the great Titanic loss of life
But how can we portray the anguish
Of losing husband, son, daughter or wife.
What of those thousands that are killed
In the terrible struggles on the seas
By the wars and the battles that rage
Who was there to hear all those pleas.
The sea can be such a peaceful place
Giving solace and so much joy to all
But for those left to spend a last breath
What is to be heard of their last call.
