I will Always sail You….

sail Amsterdam
you’re the nautical dream to my heart
sails from above, kites on the water
we’ll find ourselves – the festival of pirates and friendly dragons

bongo drums across the water
whisper the whispering sounds of an echo
answer me until we separate our bodies
imagination – these great drapes pushing sky

in a tribal dance the wind answers
challenging us beyond a race – form our collage
unfurl now – let your arms go
i will always find you – i will always sail you


* SAIL Amsterdam is a maritime event in Amsterdam where ships from all over the world visit the city and people can visit the ships
