Eternal Deployment

I know I will spend the rest of my life at sea,
because there are no longer places that I want to be.

I have seen the end of the Age of Exploration.
Because you are the only woman that completed my spiritual restoration.

At every sunrise, I wait to see what life has in store,
but I know I will never again feel what I felt when I embraced your shore.

As I wait for my ship’s sail to fill with wind,
I will never forget the last time I looked into your eyes and held the hand of my first best friend.
