Sailing Through A Third of a Century
We had a 3rd of a century together, sailing the many seas
Some were rough and windy, some we sailed with ease
We hoisted our sails and dropped anchor in many ports
Enjoying life and having fun on all our favorite shores.
Our family and friends grew and filled our sails throughout the years,
with many oceans of happiness and a few sad seas of tears
Suddenly Pat's ship of strength was ravaged with his pain
And though we prayed it would recover, it would never sail again
When my captain could not return for a life he would have loved
I had to let his spirit go, to sail the seas above.
So I told him I would release him, to sail the great beyond
And though we're apart on earth, there will always be that bond.
And someday we'll all meet again as whitecaps in the sea
Without the pain & challenges, our spirits will be free
Love you and miss you so very much.
