Mariner's Lament

This song came out of nowhere one day last winter. It represented an outpouring of my soul; some profound sadness that lay hidden, deep within. It was clearly a traditional lament. Being a bit of a sailor, I realized it could be a tribute to all those brave souls lost at sea over the centuries. But my own inner feelings elude me still.

They struggle against the storm

But are claimed by the sea
I call…

And they come to me
