Lament

last night we set sail
with our Love fleet going north
we promised to leave behind our castles
let dirges sit beyond the bay of our hearts
we kept our dreams with hope
glittering softly in our moonlit cabin

today the sun is shining brightly
yet the sea is blue and boiling
everywhere we taste a salty spray
and our hope died before our quarter moon
