If lovers still wrote letters
I would write you such a letter that
You needn't read again
Quite possibly
But passably I jest

Thinking "if I had I only had the time or
Inclination"
Like both were gifts
That I could only beg for
Or be blessed
Cursed and contented be to guess
Whether fortune will favour me

So forsake me don’t forget me
If that is all I have to choose between
I choose a life of seasick wonder
On a western sea
As fortune favours the wave

If lovers still wrote letters
I would write you such a letter that
The words may free our hearts
From land-locked chest
In this year of the yes
Fortune favours the wave
