Dedicated to Sam.
Submitted by Anonymous
A chance encounter in a chat room brought me together with a most interesting ex marine Sam,he lived on his boat and I found myself eagerly awaiting his times on line with me on instant messenger,both were widowed and found it easy to exchange topics,interests and many laughs.
As I sat in rain sodden England ,Sam lifted my spirits by his tales of sailing to Belize and on to beautiful hawaii where he was to make his home aboard his beloved ship.
To hear about the wonderful wood carvers he had hired and his trip to the Mahon ruins,one could only picture in my mind.
I had to keep pinching myself at finding such a salt of the earth man just from being in a chat room.
Sadly it was not meant to be,my choice of two words,abrupt and curt at my disapointment of such a short E/M from him seemed to annoy him ,no ammount of offering the olive branch would get this back to safe waters,Sam was last heard of at the Panama Canal heading for his new life on the islands of hawaii,my thoughts are with him often and I hope is moored in safe waters swimming with the seas wonders.
If Sam should ever read this,thank you for bringing the blue skies of Hawaii into my life for just a little while,there will always be a little place in my heart with the name SAM there.
