Don’t Be Afraid

I wish I had a sailboat
That I could drift far and away
It would let me ever float
And then take me home someday.

As I flow, I would dream of you
Perhaps I would cry or maybe titter
Maybe smell what is really true
Trailing your image is never bitter.

Maybe it is a fantasy of nowadays,
Or the wind is passing through a lifetime.
How can life change its ways?
Just don’t be afraid, it is not your time.

The world is about and someday is here
I will always remember your sweat clear sound
And then I will never live in fear
Sometimes I wish I could float above the clouds.

I don’t know if it is a dream
Am I growing old or am I just lonely
Maybe it is a dusk of daydreams
My wish for a sailboat is for the only.
