this one was written in Jan '90..........on our last week of patrol 

USS Simon Bolivar Gold

Homeward bound

are glory seekers

we've defended our country

by not being weaker

though hollidays come

we do whats right

for freedom and honor

with all our might

now christmas is gone

and the new year is here

our freedom is safe

there's no need to fear

so tell our families

and old friends too

that soon we'll be home

and not to be blue

we think of you all

the young and the old

we'll be home soon,

Love, Bolivar Gold
