Calypso, de Suzanne Vega

 

 

My name is Calypso and I have lived alone
I live on an island and I waken to the dawn.
A long time ago I watched him struggle with the sea
I knew that he was drowning and I brought him in to me.
Now today, come morning light,
he sails away, after one last night.
I let him go.
Now I let him go.

My name is Calypso. My garden overflows.
Thick and wild and hidden is the sweetness there that grows.
My hair, it blows long as I sing into the wind.
I tell of nights where I could taste the salt on his skin,
Salt of the waves and of tears.
And though he pulled away, I kept him here for years.
Now I let him go.

My name is Calypso. I have let him go.
In the dawn he sails away to be gone forever more.
And the waves will take him in again, but he’ll know their ways now.
I will stand upon the shore with a clean heart and my song in the wind.
The sand will sting my feet and the sky will burn.
It’s a lonely time ahead. I do not ask him to return.
I let him go. I let him go.

Suzanne Vega
