You built me a boat
To take out to sea
told me to float
And remember to breathe

I walked shakily on deck
Watching the sails move freely
You gave me a quick peck
And told me not to dally

But the sea is scary
with its crashing waves
Taking the journey alone makes me wary
I remember you taking me out all those days

With a stern look in your eye,
You send me off on my own
You force me to fly
Because I am now full grown

You built me a boat
A long time ago
I learned to float
The day you made me go
