The Voyage

As a young man, I cast off my line And sailed into life's sea My destination was unknown Just happy to be free I oft sailed troubled waters Furling sails til the time when I'd ridden out the turbulence And my seas were calm again Each storm I met would leave it's mark But it also helped me see It's all part of the voyage It made a stronger me My trips took me to many shores Each offered something new I would fill my hold with knowledge Then my anchor weigh anew My moral compass set my course Truth kept my vessel straight Integrity filled out my sails Friendship was my mate But alas, this weary sailor Knew when he should sail no more Since time and tide had run their course I set a course for shore I sailed into life's harbor Where my anchor came to rest Threw my seabag on my shoulder Full of memories from my quest. I often open up the bag And relive the years inside Back when I was a young man And I rode the rising tide
