Hard to Go

In contemplation…

   Hard to Go

After thirty years it’s hard to go
But life unfolds in its own mysterious way
Though one thing’s known as he stands to face this new day
The unfolding will be forward so

The looking back will be for fun
The challenge and the life to live remain out there
Or here. Just as he left land for adventure flying at sea

Now he sends those he’s taught to find their own way in the Navy
In leading them to do so he must himself dare
New footsteps just as if he were young

So new adventures begin to show
That life is always onward and into the fray
And his manner is to embrace it come what may
Still, it’s hard to go
