Signal to me when you’ve found the secret

When you see the swinging lantern

wave to me and shout

and I will wave to you

to show you all is fine.

You and me are family,

halflings in a salty, water place,

depleted now from swimming

into monstrous seas

that threaten

and pound and heave us

onto a rocky shore.

When we rest at last

and find a place

and find a ship to take us home,

meet me there,

under the half moon,

and together

we will look out to sea

to share what we have seen.
