The White Rose on the Isle of Dreams
Far away up on the shore
A ship drifts past the Dreamer's door
Fading out onto the sea,
of Once Again
the sail sets free.
Whispers rush from the
To draw the Captain's heart once more
Caressing winds that move
"Please come back and never forget".
As memories lap like waves to shore
Two hearts touch like they did once before.
Swirling winds dance with
the stars bear witness to love's embrace.
Within their grasp the
The white rose once red not long ago.
Sail free my dear Captain on your mighty ship,
Whispers the Dreamer he will never forget.
So it be there on
that distant shore
The Dreamer waits for the Captain adored.
