Quiet now my child,
We’ll soon begin our journey.
Listen to the crashing waves and let them erode your pain.
Let the rhythm match your trembling,
let the salt crawl through your skin, And the sun harden it.
It will be a long voyage.
Let your toes sink into the sand,
and feel the pillowing comfort.
The sea awaits us both,
our voyage south.
Set sail my child,
my body, your ship,
my heavy heart, your anchor.
