Bless Those of the Waters by Bob Atkinson

Bless Those of the Waters

(c)2012 Bob Atkinson

oh, bless the waters truly blue
to the lives of many men
who live the gallant life of sacrifice
and pain over and again

theirs gives a tribute to the soul
of that which doesn't always win
but expends those efforts anyway
has been this since the world began

true to traditions garnered
of many, many in the past
from Smith to Billy Tyne
and countless other thousands

here is the quest of mankind
to expand and conquer all
to rise beyond the simple fears
dying for it, or standing tall

upon the mountains or the oceans
running down fast river flows
up to the heavens beyond the clouds
or deep into the earth's bowels

we see them as heroes
we see them in their travails
we glow in their accomplishments
and watch them sometimes fail
