I held a pile of sand
then I let it go.
it took so long to lose it.
it melted-- it was snow.

Big, black clouds
race us to the north pole.
In this melting world,
there one thing I would hold
on to—to you –

Forward, forward to the top of the world.

Are you a lonely boy
writing without a sound?
I am a willful girl.
I sing your name out loud.

Do you think of me?
draw our home on the blank ground?
I left home to look for you.
It’s the whole wide world I found
