I am excited I must admit
Anticipation...chomping at the bit
Four days til boarding...so very soon!
This very Saturday...on deck by noon!
Questions now surface, anxiety soared
Can we go swimming right when we board?
One dress or two for formal nights?
If there's a mutiny...what are our rights?
Is early seating too soon to eat?
Will we adjust to the 80 degree heat?
How many shoes should one teenager pack?
What have we forgotten, what do we lack?
Three teenage daughters all in our room
Enough hot water? Or do I face doom?
Will we have fun on board in the sun?
Will we enjoy our week on the run?
I think we will...a family we are
Time spent together here and afar
Memories built and experiences found
Tight as a family...intimately bound
