I want to be yours

Like ships want to carry adventure

Like ducks yearn for cool streams to swim in

Sea otters hold hands as they sleep

So they don’t float away from each other

Our hands don’t stretch across oceans

We don’t come into each other’s beds like the tides

One moon yes and one moon no

But my love for you is wild and true

And just as big as the ocean that keeps us apart

And the same way baby turtles make their way towards the sea

I will always find my way to you
