My Heart's at sea Forever

My Heart's at Sea Forever

Long ago I was a Sailor.
I sailed the Ocean blue.
I knew the bars in Singapore...
The coastline of Peru.

I knew well the sting of salt spray,
The taste of Spanish wine,
The beauty of the Orient...
Yes, all these things were mine.

But I wear a different hat now,
Jeans & T-shirts too.
My sailing days were long ago...
with that life I am through.

But somewhere deep inside of me...
The sailor lives there still.
He longs to go to sea again,
But knows he never will.

My love, my life, is here at home,
and I will leave her never.
Though mind and body stay ashore...
My heart's at sea forever.

This kinda says it all concerning a Sailor and his memories.
I wish I had written this poem but I did not.
I do not know the author.

God bless our troops and keep them safe

Fortunately, I can still go to sea (or, more properly, in it).
The Boats and technology have changed but the spirit of their Crews seems eternal.
