Come, they whisper.
It will be okay.
Do not be afraid,
We are here. 
Take our hands-
We hold your heart.
Come, they say.
This is a new adventure,
Not everyone has the chance
To see what you will see.
Come, they urge.
It's safe--
The water's nice out here.
Come, they promise.
You're safe with us.
We understand.
Please, come.
And, I go.
