Across the Western Ocean
My home is now silent, and I have taken to those haunting waves
To set forth upon new land, and to find you, the woman of maebh.*
We come from different worlds, locked together in constant motion,
But I'm determined to embrace you, even from across the western ocean.
I'll sail across the world for you, even if the journey sends me to Hell.
It merely took one glance and I was immediately under your spell.
Like a siren's call, you pulled me in from a world away.
To arrive at you safely, I can only hope and pray.
And someday soon, when this coffin ship meets the shore
Hand in hand, together, in this new life, we will explore.
Day after day of this journey, we long for our first embrace,
But until then, I will be guided by your enchanting grace.
*(may-v) Gaelic word for someone who is alluring.
