He is a traveller, must explore further
Eyes firm on the horizon, charging in even deeper,
Dignity intact, embracing grave uncertainties
Adventurous and perilous are his turbulent seas.

Died at sea whisper ghosts, her with a cry
Try oh why must we try when souls are so far apart
Such is the nature of love, no rules or borders behind.
