A Song for the Gypsy Chief

I happened upon the Gypsy Camp as I travelled through Lemuria. The Chief asked me to join their party for the evening. We shared a meal and afterwards sat around the fire singing songs.
I shared a favourite of mine by Irish singer Christy Moore.

The Voyage

I am a sailor, you're my first mate
We signed on together, we coupled our fate
Hauled up our anchor, determined not to fail
For the hearts treasure, together we set sail

With no maps to guide us we steered our own course
Rode out the storms when the winds were gale force
Sat out the doldrums in patience and hope
Working together we learned how to cope

Chorus: Life is an ocean and love is a boat
In troubled water that keeps us afloat
When we started the voyage, there was just me and you
Now gathered round us, we have our own crew

Together we're in this relationship
We built it with care to last the whole trip
Our true destination's not marked on any charts
We're navigating to the shores of the heart

What a great song - I love Christy Moore. Just had a peek at his website - ``greetings to my 23 loyal readers" - lovely!

I also Love Christy Moore, I think my fave song is called "Flickering Light" from memory, not sure. A beauty, like these words indicate. Lovely.

Megan,
This song is a favorite of my husbands and of course, I have heard it so many times. He has a framed copy of the words on his desk. The words are beautiful and very significant,aren't they?
