Like The Sea And The Sky

Watching all the ships go by,

looking at the free birds in the sky,

I wish life was like the sea and the sky.


I could fly to freedom from society,

I could try to have a free conscience in me.

I could make friends in foreign lands,

their feelings and culture I could understand.


I could sail to the horizon of people’s heart

I could float to the point where their emotions did start,

then extinguish the flames of jealousy, in which men have burnt

and then teach them about the new love that I have learnt.


How I wish our lives were as big as the sea, and as open as the sky.
