My sailor boy so far from home,
by Julie Drost
beneath the roiling waves and foam.
I wonder if you miss the sky,
I wonder if your feet are dry,
I wonder if you sleep at all,
I wonder if your growing tall.
You dreamed of life beneath the sea,
I hope it’s all you thought it’d be.
I wonder if you know we pray
for God to guide you night and day.
Our hearts connect, a living chain
I see your truth, I know your pain.
I long to see your face again,
my little boy, grown to a man.
