On the dock Waiting for the next Sea voyage She never travels alone She slipped from her mother's womb Into the arms of a wise eyed grandmother She tripped into her toddling childhood And the strong hands of an uncle steadied her She skipped through adolescence And her moral opposite egged her on while learning to share her values She flipped for a man and Settled onto marriage with Love and the Lord's help Now she waits for her newest adventure And her company on this journey Are faces she already loves.
