Autumn Leaf

Now is a time for change
For a wind to fill my sails,
And a wave to awaken the sea.

Adventure has come
All knots are untied
And the dock is left far behind.
There is a mystery in this sea;
An uncertainty in its ways:

Here it ebbs,
There it flows,
To bring me to stranger horizons.

It is vast and beautiful.
Each ripple stirs within me
A dream beyond dimensions;
A hope beyond inventions.
I am held firm by its obscurities;
I cling desperately to its perplexities.

With the arms of my country behind,
My past and my home intertwined,
I sail through the sea to your arms,
And find life upon these shores.
