I stepped off my boat for the very last time
The home I had lived in for three years
A life where I had seen many things
That I might never see again
I watched dolphins leap from the bow
On nights when the moon disappeared
They left a trail of glittering light
Like a mirror of the stars
I swam beside a humpback whale
As she drifted through the ocean
She lifted her tail, curved her back
Plunged deep into the sea
I looked down a volcano’s mouth
At the deadly lava within
A piece of pumas spewed up high
Flying past my head
I turned and faced my sailboat
I thought of the places I’d been
Friends I'd made and islands I'd seen
Sad to watch it end
