Once in a Lifetime

Let me sing a song for you --
a song carried by the wind into
the autumn hues
under the vaults of the unknown
we call home.

Listen to my tune and my gaze
lost in longing --
maybe you will find it in you
to stay, to not be afraid of
travelling out at sea
with me --
two sky-bound sailors
in a frosty night.

Maybe we shall break the spell
with our ecstasy and
the dawn will rise on our skins.

And the sea will chant for us
and the earth will harbour
our awakening forevermore.
