I see my self as captain of a ship sailing across life’s ocean… steering at a slow and steady rate… and how my sailing is made easier and more rewarding by the friends I accumulate. As I sail to different destinations… I find from day to day new friends can board at any port… while some old friends go ashore along the way. Some old friends will return for a visit… to share a story…a laugh…a cry… for there is always room upon my ship… for those who’ve said goodbye. That is the wonder of our sailing ships… once a friend has boarded…no matter where or when… our friendship re-ignites once our ships cross paths again. If I’m lucky some friends will ride with me forever… across oceans vast and wide… and I shall always feel safe, secure…and happy knowing they are by my side. Knowing wherever my journey takes me… through weather foul or fair… all I have to do is turn around and they’ll be standing there… And knowing as they captain their ships… as our hopes and dreams we share… all they have to do is turn around… to find me standing there. Ready to lend an ear…a hand…a hug… with a smile or a kind word to say… as we ride on each other’s friend-ship… until our ocean fades away.
