I believe that's pretty much all there is .(posted 5042 days ago)
There are no roses on a sailor's grave, No lilies on an ocean wave, The only tribute is the seagulls' sweeps, And the teardrops that a sweetheart weeps.
-German song (from the book "Iron Coffins" by Herbert A. Werner) . or slightly different :
There are no roses on sailors graves, Nor wreaths upon the storm tossed waves, No last post from the Royals band, So far away from their native land, No heartbroken words carved on stone, Just shipmates bodies there alone, The only tributes are the seagulls sweeps, And the teardrop when a loved one weeps.
