Artwork by Merrell Hatton

Remember the time she opened the present,

Slow and gentle,

Waking the long ocean mist,

Young and gentle,

Trust building a secret,

Velvet words flowing from her lips,

Forever change,

Embrace the fire,

Free from the eye,

By dance and movement,

Let music to the heart,

I live knowing my life is here.
