Dear John

Moving on, pause for coffee
Been out of the Navy a long time, moving on
Don’t really have a place to be
Moving on, pause for coffee
Seen a lot a long time ago in the Navy
Maybe I saw too much — better gone
Moving on, pause for coffee
Been out of the Navy a long time moving on.

This poem was written for Poets Rally, Week 50.

  3. This made me think of an old man re-telling his navy experiences to an audience who clearly weren’t interested so he says “moving on”

    also catching himself thinkng of some of the things he experienced, he decideds it better not to dwell on them…but even so in a way he longs for those days as he has now finds himself without purpose, anyway ‘moving on’

    I thoroughly enjoyed this piece.
