I’ve slipped the surly bonds of earth and soared above the clouds. The voice of the sea had called me, yet the horizon I could not meet. A Veteran from long forgotten wars, a hero quiet and proud. My life has been a long journey and it’s just my time to go. I’ve gone to meet my family and friends I lost so long ago. Don’t weep for me, I’m young again and I’ll meet you at
