Many friends and strangers have touched my life
Shared happy memories and held me through strife
We basked in the sun and survived stormy weather
Walked hand in hand and stood by one another

Yet it’s very strange when I think about the topic
Of the years I spent in my beloved island tropic
The magic of time that transformed in a few years
A bunch of strangers into best friends among peers

Through the best years of our lives we swam the tide
We have endured the seas and held on to our pride
Earth will bear witness with the heavens above
That our world was filled with faithfulness and love

Beyond the horizon in many distant strange lands
We are separated by oceans and hot dessert sands
But in spirit we unite, even now as grown men
Like in the days of old when we roared at the den
