The arch of my sole tickled pink

To stay high and firm, never sink

Behind my knees were strong, not weak

From a game of hide and seek

Thighs hungered for a trunk to grip

So one day I would sway, not trip

But then growing up and gone astray

Somehow forgotten how to play

Believing I was not made that way

Only to remember a time, long ago

When I loved to say hello

To friends true and worthwhile

Giving you my honest smile

No island is truly alone

As water connects all those on their own

Far away across the seas

Listening for messages in the breeze

I may be far away dear friends

Forever your voices will soulful cleanse
