Alone I will not be, my comfort will come from the sea. The stillness of calm waves will gently drift by; I will be as one with the sea. When the sun sets on the ocean blue, remember me as I will always remember you. As the sun rises, go live life as full as can be. Apart, you and me, but at peace for I am free. ---------Author unknown
