    I copied this, and saved it. I did 20+ years. I know the feelings this causes in me. I still dream about my time in the Navy. I'd be there still, if I could. Time and age are hell on a man. Just reading this puts a wistful tear in my eye. (no joke)

    A Sailors Poem

    Old Sailors sit and chew the fat

    'bout how things use to be,

    of the things they've seen and places they've been,

    when they ventured out to sea.



    They remember friends from long ago

    and the times they had back then,

    of the money they've spent,and the beer they've swilled

    in their days as sailing men.



    Their lives are lived in days gone by,

    with thoughts that forever last,

    of Dixie cup hats and bell bottom blues,

    and the good times in their past.



    They recall long nights with a moon so bright

    far out on a lonely sea,

    and thoughts they had as youthful lads,

    when their lives were unbridled and free.



    They know so well how their hearts would swell,

    when the flag fluttered proud and free,

    and the stars and stripes made such beautiful sights

    as they plowed through an angry sea.



    They talk of the bread the cook would bake

    and the shrill of the bo'sun's pipe,

    and how the salt spray fell like sparks out of hell

    when a storm struck in the night.



    They remember mates already gone

    who forever hold a spot

    in the stories of old when sailors were bold

    and lubbers a pitiful lot.



    They rode their ships through many a storm

    when the sea was showing its might,

    and the mighty waves might be digging their graves

    as they sailed on through the night.



    They speak of nights in a bawdy house

    somewhere on a foreign shore,

    and the beer they'd downed as they gathered around,

    cracking jokes with a busty whore.



    Their sailing days are gone away,

    never more will they cross the brow,

    but they have no regrets for they know they've been blessed

    'cause they honored their sacred vow.



    Their numbers grow less with each passing day

    as their chits in this life are called,

    but they've nothing to lose for they've paid their dues

    and they'll sail with their shipmates again.



    I've heard them say before getting underway

    that there is still some sailing to do,

    and they'll exclaim with a grin that their ship has come in,

    and the Lord is commanding the crew.
