Lyrics

Depths

There's a deep in my heart
That goes to forever.
Sometimes I go near
To this abyss.
Currents sweep by
This place I am tethered.
Living my life,
Watchful I exist.

I exist and am happy
For much that has been.
Though I'll keep nothing
I've held much in my keep.
The ocean of my heart
Has been charted,
Its depths hold a light
That journeys ignited.

I went sailing
On a journey,
On the deep
Of my yearning.
Where I was headed
There was no telling;
Just space and water,
And the light I am shedding.

At times I feel a sadness
For what will not be,
At least not in this world
That just so much can release.
I think of John, my brother, gone,
Gone, maybe free.
I wonder on another -
This life was too deep.

They went sailing
On a journey,
On the deep
Of their yearning.
Where they were headed
There was no telling;
Just space and water,
And the light they were shedding.

Sometimes I wonder
What might be;
The lives of my children
Are now on the sea.
Their craft are away
On the currents and in the wind.
I try to build them strong
To sail on the depths.

They are sailing
On a journey,
On the deep
Of their yearning.
Where they're headed
There's no telling;
Just space and water,
And the light they are shedding.

Then I am hopeful,
Whatever may be,
When this life is over
We will all meet
And know a reason for
The wonder, the joy and the fear;
And come to a harbour,
The depths having been cleared.

And go sailing
On a journey,
On the deep
Of our yearning.
Where we'll be headed
There is no telling;
Just space and water,
And the light we'll be shedding.
