THE MYSTERY OF THE SEA
Oh, the mystery of the Sea!
What treasures lie within your depths?
I stood upon the rocks looking out to sea,
And I heard the roaring waves
As they came crashing into the shore,
It sounded like a thousand voices
Calling from out of the past.
I could smell a salty mist in the air,
The misty spray felt cool upon my skin
As the waves splashed against the rocks,
The moon shone through a twilight sky
And reflected itself upon the water.
I stood there thinking of how the sea was a mystery,
It's been around since the dawning of God's creation,
Oh, if only the sea could talk!
What amazing tales she could tell,
About the mariners who sailed the ancient world,
Intriguing stories of adventure, mystery,
And romance on the high seas.
As I kneeled down with my hands in the water
I tasted the misty salty air upon my lips,
I wanted to say goodbye to a sea that has
Always intrigued me since childhood,
Although the sea began here at creation
It won't end until the worlds end.
