We buried her out in the open sea,
Far from the lights and the harbor bars,
Deep in the waves where she longed to be,
Under a sky of stars.

The sea was tired and still that night,
It took her in forevermore.
Our boat that bore a crimson light
Turned back to find the shore.

And when we reached the restless quay
Our hearts were envious of her
Who lay too deep beneath the sea
For any storm to stir.
