Dedicated to my father, who is now suffering from a beginning dementia....


Sailing across the Sea

watching the coast of dreams
get closer and ever close
thanks to the waves of the heart beat

I carry your name
and I wear your love

So take me to that place
where our dreams were born

Through the mutual 
heritage of the 
fore fathers

from the waves of our 
heart beat

You´re my Father
and I carry your name

while sailing across the sea

Yeah, let´s go to that place
while the waves of the heart beat
guide our way

Freedom under the starry night
born by the waves of our
heart beat

Nicely done, waves of the ocean like the fluidity of dementia - being present, coming and going, remembering, recalling the solid memories. Love does endure, this much I know x
