YES/NO?



   oh one who passes messages by bottles in the sea!

   can you see me

   can you hear me
 
 

   oh one who passes dreams across the winds!

   can you see me

   can you hear me
 
 

   maybe yes in the morning and no in the

   afternoon and maybe tonight we will

   ride the wind~~~
 
 

 
     these are bottles in the sea 

     sealed by small hands of children 

     too young or too old to 

     struggle with answers 

     or questions 
 
 

     may we all still be young enough 

     to roll our message 

     into the bottle 

     may we 

     all be careful with the sealing 

     may we 

     have enough faith 

     to throw it 

     with all our might
