I will not stay one minute more

Within this dream upon the shore


Now that it’s clear to me

My life is out upon the sea


I thought the shore serene secure

But now I know it’s just a lure


To keep me from a life awake

And quietly my soul to take


The sea is rough and savage sure

It tears apart what is pure


But trying to protect myself

Confines my spirit to a shelf


It may seem safe, but this I’m sure

It will not happiness procure


When all of life is wild and free

Embracing waves is sure the key


So life and sea I welcome thee

Although my death you will be


For without you I am doomed

Never alive to be entombed
