So Jimmy Buffett has this song called One Particular Harbor. After close examination of the lyrics, I've decided it's about one particular harbor. It's a pretty straight-forward thing, as Buffett songs tend to be, but I've always liked it.
“I know I don’t get there often enough
But God knows I surely try

There’s this one particular harbour
So far but yet so near
Where I see the days as they fade away
And finally disappear”
