For whom the bell tolls

          For whom the bell tolls
         The ship was sinking,
         powerful waves caused
         the side holes
         and I was wondering
         for whom the bell tolls.

         Construction old and tired,
         like me if I say,
         on the bow
         a tugboat tied
         and the risk passed away….

         It happened years ago…

         This salutary tow
         saved my life....

         A real, between life
         and death, strife….
