It was a rule to meet sunrise with that sketchbook at her side
In every city that she traveled through
And you know, I never asked her why, as you could tell in just that smile
The heaviest reasons lay in her lightest moves

And she called me out to sea
To show me the shore
Said “we’re all another’s light…
Now let me be yours”.

That day we tied those red balloons to the hope-filled winds of June
And we trailed them along the escarpment’s tail
Now two years on, a darker wind – her wishes now weathered in the firmament
But still she holds her wings to sail the swell

And she called me out to sea
To show me the shore
Said “we’re all another’s light…
Now let me be yours”.

In four simple words she turned this little ship around
As before her, life was just filling these fumbling hands
With the promise of foreign sands
And now with her here in the pour, the tides of led me to a place
To be more....
