I was walking somewhere new
singing an unfamiliar tune
in a voice that was not my own.
the sand uncomfortable in my shoes
and the wind skipping across my skin
chilling me through
I wasn't even there.
and then I stumbled, falling to the sharp shore
and it was over
until you caught me, holding me snug
and even though I couldn't see it before
I was carried, warm, safe and sound
singing the beautiful song I didn't know I knew
in a voice that was not my own
until you were singing, too.
