Shipboard Romance



A Shipboard Romance from Capetown to Cairo,
Born on the sea where memories stay,
And though he was from England, she from Germany,
War was still far away;

They hit a bad storm off the couast to Mombasa,
Battered and bruised, the ship carried on,
When he held her and told her that all will be well,
She knew that he was The One;

She said "You are my hero and you are my love,
You came to me from the heavens above,
All of my life I've been waiting for you,
I know that this is more than a Shipboard Romance!"

He gave her a gift of a beautiful diamond,
"A memory of me when you're far away, "
At the end of the journey, tears goodbye,
Never knowing if they'd meet again;

But Fate has a way of changing our lives forever,
When he saw in the paper a valuable diamond for sale;
So he went to the place in Holland,
And then when he saw her face, she ran to his arms,
And all the years just fell away with her tears;

A Shipboard Romance from Capetown to Cairo,
Born on the ocean where memories stay,
And the elderly couple were so much in love,
Hand in hand every day;

And she'd say,
"He is my hero and he is my love,
He came to me from the Heavens above,
All of my life I've been waiting for him,
I knew that this was more than a Shipboard Romance
I knew that this was more than a Shipboard Romance!"
