Pearl Harbor

A calm day at sea as it seemed to the eye,
But those that lay at rest soon would die.
The alert would be ready, with their guns aimed steady,
But the sleeping awakened to gunfire frenzy.

A ship in calm water reflected our nation,
Serving and protecting a soon battle station.

My Grandfather was there, but left at the right time
Departing the night before when the clock stroke nine.
I am alive today as a result of this.
My thanks to early departure- a life-giving bliss.

Although most died protecting others lives,
I’m glad he left early, were only promised one life.
I’m as happy as a clam in the calm water,
I can now swim free thanks to my father’s father.
