My Foolish Boat

Set adrift, on shapeless oceans
I did all my best to smile
Til your singing arms and fingers
Drew me loving to your eyes.

And you sang, “Sail to me, swim to me;
Let me enfold you.”

Here I am, here I am waiting to hold you.
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you here when I was flotsam?
