As She Remembers

A ship built of beauty

That's now a distant memory

Lying in a dark and lonely graveyard

Nothing but her memories that lie along with her

Memories of that tragic night

As she remembers speeding towards her tragic fate

And the pain that took her as she hit

She remembers the woman being parted from their loved one

Leaving for safety and a new life

She remembers all the children that died along with her

She remembers the screams and the fear

That was spurn upon all

As she was lowered into the water she felt the coldness

That would became her new fortress

As the lifeboats left the terror

All grieved for their losses

All wondered about the new life that would take hold

As she went under she began a new life
