Why do you stay away for so long,
when you know the warmth of my sand
And the colors I can paint the sky for you,
Lay just beyond the mountains?
Run to me, child, when you feel weak,
run to me when the world isn’t what you seek.
Don’t hesitate to drink me in, I have enough to give.
If your heart grows weary, I will help it live,
with the sound of waves lapping the shore,
the cool mist that kiss your cheeks at dawn,
And the gentle breeze easing you along.
Don’t let yourself get frozen in a moment,
Or life will be one long, and painful lament.
