Happy fathers day to my dad

Well I couldn't let today pass without recognising what a great dad I had, so to you my salty sailor dad, I miss you so much and cherish the memories I have of you. You where funny, adventurous, kind and so loving. This ones for you Dad xxx

The ship of life - by John T Baker

Along the shore I spy a ship 
As she sets out to sea; 
She spreads her sails and sniffs the breeze 
And slips away from me. 

I watch her fading image shrink, 
As she moves on and on, 
Until at last she's but a speck, 
Then someone says, She's gone.

Gone where? Gone only from our sight 
And from our farewell cries; 
That ship will somewhere reappear 
To other eager eyes. 

Beyond the dim horizon's rim 
Resound the welcome drums, 
And while we're crying, There she goes!
They're shouting, Here she comes!

We're built to cruise for but a while 
Upon this trackless sea 
Until one day we sail away 
Into infinity.
