Sun bright in the sky

shines down on water smooth as glass

boats bob gently in the bay

yachts shiny clean and ready to sail

sitting on my verandah watching them go

I wish I could go too

jump on a boat and fly

out to sea, to freedom under the sky

the immensity of the ocean, pristine and pure

away from the sadness that hangs over the land

escape to a world where beauty prevails

where we can be free
