Worst fears became true

March 12, 2019

So gentle was the forecast, all steady was their tide. 

Friends abruptly lost at sea, presumably they died.


Spirits lost to oceans blue, sadly captured every heart. 

Memories left to cherish, are thoughts that will not part.


Mourning are two families, left to question that sad day.

No answers to their mystery, that took loved ones away.


We all prayed for a miracle, or wished for one more clue.

While hope never washed away, worst fears became true. 


Parting earth, three precious smiles, all leaving quite a mark.

Bestowed to a new water world, in their aqua-marine park.


Still we wait with saddened hearts, for any news to unfold.

Their peace brings new reflection and memories to be told.


Next time you peer above the sea or well beyond the Cape,

You may see a boat’s reflection, moored firmly to God’s gate.
