Paper boats song collaboration (new slow version)

My good friend on red bubble from the UK Uncleblack (aka les king aka hollyann and the Katie winter) has redone the track for Paper Boats in a beautiful slow version… Paper Boat Tears was a poem I wrote to go with a painting, Uncleblack often sees the written work of other artists and gets inspired to create music to turn them into songs. This is one such poem :). go here to get the link for a listen…. He and I both thank you and hope you enjoy the new slow tempo…I myself think it’s a beautiful version and I listen to it often, In fact I was listening to the original version on YouTube just yesterday, as it always takes me back to the whales and the dolphins and the ocean, wher I find my solitude and serenity.

Thank you again Les!!

The words below are from
my poem, which is now a song in 2 acoustic versions by Uncleblack;

Tomorrow when I wake
I am starting something new
I will make some paper boats
and ready them for you
I want my tears to be
with the fishes in the sea
with the whales and leviathans
and the dolphins who are free
I am building paper boats
like little funeral pyres
to contain from here my tears
and send them out for miles
Once the boats are soakeded
with my tears all splashed upon them
I’ll stand at waters edge
and send them out onto the ocean
then part of me has melded
with the deep blue open places
and the peace that comes from letting go
will heal me down the ages
Next I’ll dream the whale
has met me in the sea
that he understands my sorrows
and sing songs to comfort me
so tears now do flow freely
upon my paper boats
and help me send my sorrows
on the origami floats
And where the whale is leaping
deep blue waters are my tears
and when the dolphins gather
I have shared with them my cares
