FAIR WINDS

As the hours pass on a shadowy night
her thoughts drift towards the ocean
where moonlight draws a silvery sword
across her lonely heart

He sailed away one wintery morn
to work along the southern coast
They’d sworn their love with a fiery kiss
And the promises all lovers make

I will return
I will come back to you
I will return to hold you
in my arms

May a fair wind blow
to speed your way
and bring you back to me
safely, back to me

A year went by as every year had
on that quiet palm tree bay
Fair winds blew as she ran to the shore
the day his ship came in
