To the Sea

My mother’s home
My family
Full moon
The following sea
And one day soon
I will flee
I’ll leave my home
To the sea

My father’s home
Sand and sea
Hide the moon
Fell your trees
And if you do not
Hear my plea
I’ll leave my home
To the sea

My children’s home
My family
Burn your coal
Did no one foresee?
This day would come
Refugee
I’ll leave my home
To the sea

My island home
My ancestry
Raging foam
Rising sea
To those who did not
Hear my plea
I’ll leave my home
To the sea

I’ll leave my home
To the sea
