Sailors Farewell

Rating: 4.5
The funeral was over,
And all the mourners gone,
We’re going to miss you Sailor,
But guess your work here’s done.

I bet your sailing other seas
Yes! Seas so glassy calm
And telling Angels stories
But meaning them no harm.

The stories that you told me
I knew that somewhere lies
I’d heard them all a thousand times
But always played surprised.

You had some really hard times mate
And that can’t be denied
But you just got right on with life,
While other people cried.

The only time I saw you cry
Was because you missed your wife
I know she meant the world to you
In fact she was your life.

But now you’re up there with her
Both sailing heavens seas
I know you’ll take good care of her
A job you did with ease.

The mast is rigid, sails are taut
As you both sail away
And Angels light your path for you
As you go on your way.

Still Sailor memories linger on
And will do now your gone
But I will miss your stories
And so will everyone.

One thing I never told you
That often makes me sad,
I never said I loved you,
I really miss you Dad.
