Memories made now when
Long hours shifts to long nights.
Moments from these hours scatter the night.
The sun broke the nights sky without an hours rest.
Those 9-9 shifts would put our endurance to the test.

Leaving this town if only for two nights.
An escape to a timeless ocean with shining silver sand.
Wondering from seas of salt to seas of space.
The sky was pinkish blue then greenish gray finally then it all faded away.

Do you remember?
Care free days with our smallest companion.
Dearly beloved with worried emerald eyes.
His presence alone brought peace when trouble filled our minds.
That night split up the three we could have never knew.
That when the sun rose again there’d only remain two.
The of pain of loss again broke our hearts.
Saying soft goodbyes for a friend when in this town the grave had been Doug.
