  1. You inspired this: Hope you like it.

    He stood at the wheel with the spray and rain lashing his face,
    He would steer his vessel to the end, he would bring her into safe harbor.
    He was steadfast, like a rock, and focused on his mission.
    He cared little about the weather which whipped his skin and soaked him.

    Man of the Sea, beard filled with brine,
    He was strength, he was one of a kind.

    And when he died, from the flu that filled up his lungs,
    He died with a smile knowing he had brought his ship to shore safely,
    He had triumphed and won.
