Safely in the Slip
My relationship is alive and well and the passengers afloat
Let me describe for you what I find here on the love boat,
There are sails that are a bit tattered and torn, but they still fly
They are being pushed by the gospel wind into the by and by.
There is a rudder that is able to make changes when needed
It responds to the navigator when her direction is then heeded,
There are a lot of bells and whistles with Bella as the first mate
She plans the silly games and we are blessed to have a play date.
I mostly do the grilling, try to keep it simple, the maritime chow
I do not have a college degree, muddle thru the meals somehow,
We use the Word of God as our fuel and our navigation charts
We will rely on the Lord to bring us home when this life departs.
After a fashion, I am captain of this simple, seafaring schooner
At times I am the boatswain, at others; an entertaining crooner,
This vessel of domestic divergence and bliss sails the harbor daily
I do my best to keep my eyes on the prize, her love never fails me.
Whether we sail on the lake Of Michigan in a calm and easy way
Or sail around the world, following the trade winds that display,
I steer clear of the fields of icebergs that would sink our tiny ship
I am blessed man on the bridge of true love and safely in the slip.
