We Can Call This New Port Home

We Can Call This New Port Home

Time to leave a port we have called home.
You say good- bye with tears in your eyes.
You pray and hope that it will be a smooth move.
You hear the ship it getting underway.
You wonder how can I stay?
Your left alone to call a new port home.
The movers just arrived and the boxes are stacked so high.
So many fears....................
It takes everything to hold back the tears.
Where do you begin?
You unpack as fast as you can.
It feels like no end!
The stress is flying high!
You ask yourself Why?
How can this be and why me?
So many new faces,
So many unfamiliar places
You feel so alone.
Then your sailor calls on the phone
He tells you your never alone.
Your only thought is when will he be home.
Then determination and you use your imagination
You hang pictures as you do the dishes.
You can relax but have an aching back..
No need to dwell! All is well.
The ship is in and liberty begins.
Your filled pride.
Happy tears flood your eyes.
He walks threw the door
His seabag hits the floor
He looks at you and says { It's good to be home}
"We can call this new port home".
