ADAMS, James William Francis – French Cove, Richmond Co.


The Voyage

I am a sailor, you’re my first mate

We signed on together, we coupled our fate

Hauled up our anchor, determined not to fail

For the heart’s treasure, together we set sail


With no maps to guide us we steered our own course

Rode out the storms when the winds were gale force

Sat out the doldrums in patience and hope

Working together we learned how to cope


Together we’re in the relationship

We’ve built it with care to last the whole trip

Our true destination’s not marked on any charts

We’re navigating to the shores of the heart


Life is an ocean and love is a boat

In troubled waters that keeps up afloat

When we started the voyage, there was just me and you

Now gathered ‘round us, we have our own crew.


Songwriter – Johnny Duhan
