From a Connie Sailor
I'll be moving soon, the day they say is near
Has been a long time, yet I have no fear.
I've known for quite a spell this day would come,
this day that I would break ties and head for the Sun.
Many years I've rested, a rest needed yet not desired you
for I just want to continue to serve, to keep my country
I've sat here so quiet, within my hull silence echos with no
no screaming turbines, no catapult offered for a jet to
No orders from the bridge to get that headwind right,
no Tomcats to send into an unknown fight.
Nothing more than memories of the sights, aroma and sounds,
Are all I have now to take with me as the darkness begins to
I have been home to countless thousands in all my years of
my walls of steel providing them all the security needed,
That that those thousands gave for my country to keep me in
As my lines are cut for the very last time I ask of those
who've set foot upon me,
Do not grieve my demise, yet celebrate what you've made me.
