The Beautiful SeaThe beautiful sea, and Canyon fishing,~that meant so much to me!To watch that water glistening,~through the setting sun,and the moon over the Hudson during the tuna run!As my eyes gazed upon, nature's incredible splendor,my soul my heart,~all does beautifully surrender!Of all the places,~of pure magic and ecstasy,there is none as glorious,~as the beautiful sea!So one day when time passes,~and you lose sight of the physical me, please feel the comfort,~that my time was blessed by the beautiful sea.Yes, my ship has sailed~and while my physical body you can see no more,hail and farewell, I am not gone,~I have just left for another shore! -Mike JacobsBrian J.
