Ode to Erato



Life on the water
Steadily wading the days
Through the hands of the forces
Following the whims of the waves

Staring each storm in the eye
No fear extant for below
As I search for her soul
Whom only I'll ever know

She sings while I sleep
She sang strong during war
She'll sing till I find her
And love her to the core

I'll reach deep inside her
Fill her heart with her wants
I'll dispose myself by her
As white knight under God

No phantom or demon
No zombie or spectre
No ethereal being
Can contest your protector

As one of God's iron fists
Over all that exists
My yenning spirit
Is inline with His

Unveiled as a sinner
And removed from the pit
With no reason to fear
I've learned to love just like Him

Sing the red into roses
I will follow your voice
Some night, we'll unite

And every night after, rejoice
