It’s been a pleasure.

every hour

every day

every week

every month


every year

every decade

every pain

I’ve ever suffered

every loss

and every hope

dashed to pieces

on the rocks

I didn’t see

or chose to try

despite the charts,

it’s been a profound

honor. I am privileged

to have served

and with your permission

volunteer for any

further assignment

you may choose to give.

All the way.
