Warmest water, balm to my body
Salty sensations, purify my soul
I dance in the waves at sunset
Giving my burdens to the sea
How could I ever leave this place?
The convergence is perfection
The ancient peoples knew this truth
And now I am learning
I want to swim in the waters forever
And yet my sacred duty is to emerge
From this ocean restored, revived
To carry this medicine to my native land
