For Polly S Bacon pictured here with her father.
She brings me peace!
Turmoil, uncertainty and confusion as they conspire to defeat,
Trying to order matters which hold true amidst the winds of chance.
Upon the seas at the mercy of swell and storms raging in eternal hands,
Where the sail may take me, the will and mood of one's inner spirit.
Torment, rage and emotion taunt, her reassurance forever steadies the mast,
Calming the heart as worries dissipate on the dawning of each new morn.
Into the unknown, the journey seems long, the challenges high and far,
Sharing every step I take you are the one who brings the peace.
For the 30 years we have journeyed together!
