romance & wanderlust
historical archaeologist

For the dancing and the dreaming

I’ll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne’er a fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me

No scorching sun
Nor freezing cold
Will stop me on my journey
If you will promise me your heart
And love me for eternity

My dearest one my darling dear
Your mighty words astound me
But I’ve no need of mighty deeds
When I feel your arms around me


But I would bring you rings of gold
I’d even sing you poetry
And I would keep you from all harm
If you would stay beside me


I have no use for rings of gold
I care not for your poetry
I only want your hand to hold
I only want you near me

To love to kiss to sweetly hold
For the dancing and the dreaming
Through all life’s sorrows and delights
I’ll keep your love inside me

I’ll swim and sail on savage seas
With ne’er a fear of drowning
And gladly ride the waves of life
If you will marry me
