    Jorge brother, I had the pleasure to meet you 1nce, at a rave that Erin, & Arturo, we’re apart of. Despite you, and Arturo obviously have completely different styles, I had to do a double take, and listen really close. I’ve so rarely in this lifetime met so few brothers whom not only looked so much alike for not being even fraternal twins, as well you both sounded so much alike, you were both also so calm in your mannerisms, spoke so lightly most of the time, and even laughed a lot alike. I thought I was having deja-vu. It was cool kickin it with you that night. I see you were also a big real Football (Soccer) fan, you were wearing a Soccer jacket, or jersey. The family resemblance is powerful. You were cool people brother. May you have found peace in your travels beyond this lifetime.

    I had the honor of serving with you on the USS KITTYHAWK. I remember when you checked onboard the ship. You were a hard working blueshirt. I remember seeing you carrying chocks and chains with your size, I couldn’t believe how much of a hard charger you were. You were always listening to your music. It got you hyped underway. The Fly3 guys really had a family back there. It saddens me to write this and it saddens me that I couldn’t keep in touch with you. Fair Winds and Following Seas shipmate. Rest easy now. You will forever be in our hearts.

  3. The Sailor Who Went Down

    There’s a frown on the sailor’s face,
    Who lost the sight of shore,
    He knew how drowning felt,
    Though he never swam before.

    In a distance far too far,
    He saw a faintly shimmering light,
    He found the lighthouse to lead him home,
    Or an old trick by his head, played through his eyes?

    The saltiness of the water,
    Mixed with the one in his eyes,
    With bones melting and heart pumping,
    For a brief moment, he was alive.

    The mist however made him lose his sight,
    But he would just wait for the light to shine,
    He lost it way too many times,
    Once more, I promise and I’d never look back.

    The starry night granted him a wish,
    “Let me see my salvation one more time”
    But some wishes they never go through,
    The sailor never saw the light.

    Old and drunk the sailor thinks about the shore,
    The warmth of the sun felt like her breath,
    He gets kissed on the cheeks by the waves,
    Playing with the sand like his lovers hair.

    But as the storm came crashing in,
    Cold water stabbed him multiple times,
    The sailor who never swam before,
    Was drowning once more.

    I wish I would have been there for you.
