Suffer the sinner
the sailor and the sea
every blesséd wave of love
you cause to crash on me

and succor down the beauty
each day of wonder seen
yet save us from calamity
from love dried to the mean

not golden or eternal
but dust within the night
never now remembered
a lifetime without light

but may you open up the day
with mindfulness not fear
intend the best for you and ours
throughout the coming year.

for C and T both.
