Mighty ocean I hope one day you will reveal
the hidden secrets you're concealing from me
does mermaids exist only in children's dreams
or is it you conceal them where I cannot see?
Mighty ocean much about you I want to know
you are our world's last unexplored frontier
does unseen creatures live in your deepest depths
that could help cure diseases all humans fear?
Your mysteries are beyond my comprehension
within you many secrets are waiting to be found
for now I sit in awe on my favorite ocean shore
wondering and listening to your tranquil sounds.
