As I sit here tonight
I have come to believe
I have bottled my heart and sent it to sea
I tucked it away in my sailors bag
As he had to go and defend the Flag.

Yes my dear Sailor
Although I am sad
You stand for our Nation, Our Freedom, and Our Flag.

I will not sit here and cry today
Instead I will smile
With pride when I say

I love you my Sailor
For the job that you do
You make your nation and me proud too.

I love you Chuck…
