I want to teach you

I want to teach you how to swim

In blue saltwater.

How not to care

When it gets in your eyes

And you can’t quite see

For a moment.

I want you to float

Away from the shore,

A long way away,

And on out to sea,

And not give a damn

How far you’ve come,

To have no fear of drowning.

I want to teach you how to sleep

Right through the night,

My hand on your brow. I

Want you to know that

I’m here, for all time,

I want you to dream

That I love you.

But most of all,

I want you to fall

Away from the sides,

Deeper than deep,

A strange new world,

Where the stars and the moon and your dreams collide -

I want you to know that I love you.
