The Restless Wave

The Restless Wave

By CPO1 Jim Hunt CD, (Retired)

Royal Canadian Navy

“When I go down to the ocean

I watch the restless wave

It is nature’s only tombstone

In memory of the brave

Beneath the ocean’s surface

In the dark and silent deep

In God’s hands are the heroes

For whom our hearts still weep

The years have passed so quickly

But my vigil I still keep

They are not dead but resting

In the ocean fast asleep

There are no special markers

In this graveyard far from shore

Just restless waves above them

For now and evermore.”
