What I Would Do?

If the ocean winds should suddenly fail,

at that last gasp of your unfurled sail,

so that your ship is forever lost to wander...

What could you do?


I could jump in the sea to swim back home,

I could struggle with the fish, surf and foam,

so that you would never be alone.

That's what I could do.


But if suddenly all the stars were to fall,

to the black horizons, till none were left at all,

and darkness descend even on truth...

What would you do?


I would fly true into the night,

and use our love to make it bright,

and sprinkle star dust into your hair.

That's what I'd do.


But if our time were to come too fast,

so we grew too old to love at last,

and we forgot our misspent youth...

What might we do?


We might open up our hearts once again,

for we might know that love lost cannot bend,

and we might cling tight until the end.

That's what we might do.


But if some tragedy should end your life,

so I no longer would be your wife, 

and as I see your ember ebb...

What should I do?


You should simply hold my hand with love,

and if you wish cry to the Gods above,

simply remember to remain true to life and love.

That's what you should do.
