After walking with you to the harsh harbour
And watching you step on the cold first ferry, wave and go,
I followed you through the rest of the stormy day.
As I did the dishes and dropped your mug
I sat on the back of your bicycle
Watching you get lost, soaked,
Miserable on the flat Frisian mainland.
There you spent your first day at the new school,
Your first night in the strange boarding house
And I stood by your bed homesick for the both of us,
Howling like a dog.
You never knew me as Cerberus did you?
