Lost at Sea

A mastless ship now lost at sea
With no maps or places to go
For all the stars have left the sky
I have nothing left to go by

My heart is empty, shot by pain
A mastless ship now lost at sea
A mere speck in the endless blue
And no idea of what to do

A writer’s words mean nothing now
When eyes of love no longer read
A mastless ship now lost at sea
For she was my reason to be

Should I swim or wait here to drown
There is no horizon to reach
For my words no longer save me
A mastless ship now lost at sea
