Last Tidbit on Theory 2

“Hope fades,
Into the world of night.”

Sometime after leaving port, the hope of making it across the sea unhindered is lost. They get attacked sometime at night.

“Through shadows falling,”

The details of the attack are lost…

“Out of memory and time.”

because there were no survivors.

“Don’t say,
We have come now to the end.
White shores are calling.
You and I will meet again.
And you’ll be here in my arms,
Just sleeping.”

The two soldiers are now facing death, they know they won’t be rescued. But the blind man is still being optimistic: death won’t be the end, there’s an afterlife to look forward to.

“the ships have come,
to carry you home.

And all will turn,
to silver glass.
A light on the water.
Grey ships pass
Into the West.”

In the last lines grey equals neutral, the grey ships are neutral ships, ships that don’t have a side in the war; they are ships of death, carrying solders from both sides of the war. Everything turning into silver glass The “West” is a metaphor for their new home; the west is where the sun sets down foe the night, where daytime ends, a place where no one have ever been able to reach, therefore that’s where the after life must be as well.
