Safe Harbor


Come into my arms, dear one
I'll hold you tight against me
For our time here has just begun
And we've so much left to see

Let’s drift across the endless plain
Let’s sail across the ocean
Upon waters or seas of grain
Wherever we’ve got a notion

We’ll travel to lands so far away
The wonderful and chaotic
We’ll dine on truffles and soufflé
And drink wines most exotic

We’ll see the most amazing stuff
Things to make you smile
And when we’ve finally seen enough
We’ll stop to rest awhile

Drop to my arms from above
And drift on down to sleep
Swaddled and wrapped in love
And dream of oceans deep
