A woman and her child on a life boat
Drifting on the blue, looking afloat
Just enough space for their bodies
And a little space for their necessities
The waves tossing them to and fro
No land to step on, nowhere to go,
At times sharks surround them, she knew it
Savage jaws that could rend them in pieces
While she still could not fathom the lost of her ship
All that she toiled for, where she tied all her dreams,
She contends with raging thoughts, seeking inner peace
But, when she's wearied, the waters call her
"Come, yield to me, you'll forget your misery,"
While it sounds soothing, appealing gentle pleas
For her tired body, it's impossible to resist
But, something's telling her. "That will drag you abyss."
Then, she turns to see her child playing,
She sings, she giggles like death is nothing,
Her eyes are glowing like they know no dimming
Speaks her dreams out like there's no heart-losing
Surges the woman's hope when she feels like quitting,
To look up and believe, Rescue is Coming!
