Song To The Siren Lyrics

On the floating, shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang, Sail to me, sail to me

Let me enfold you,
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you"

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you here when I was full sail?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks

For you sing, Touch me not, touch me not,
come back tomorrow: O my heart,
O my heart shies from the sorrow
Well I'm as puzzled as the newborn child
I'm as riddled as the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with death my bride?
Hear me sing, Swim to me, swim to me,
Let me enfold you

Here I am, Here I am,
Waiting to hold you

my sister suicided in 1982 and I was having so many dreams at the time. This version of the song gave voice to all my feelings and to my dreams. Even today all these years laterI am transported to her

And she is there waiting to hold you. This makes me think of my sister too. It is brave for you to reach out. Thank you. Those of us who have been through the unthinkable continue to light the path for each other so we can find them again.
