Things to do one day

Should I find a mental lotion
Or take sail across the motion
Of the broad Atlantic Ocean
That is all that separates my love and I

Then around her land I’d chase her
‘Til I’d kiss her and embrace her
If I found the strength to face her
For she’s always been the glimmer in my eye

Then I dream we’d stay together
Held by love’s almighty tether
Through the stormiest of weather
As she showed me there’s no need to sit and cry

I’ll now swear this to my lover
By the silver moon above her
That in time I shall discover
How we’ll meet and teach each other how to fly
