The Girl Who Lived For the Ocean


Once there was a girl, who lived for the ocean,
And she left for the everlasting sea,
Once there was a girl who lived for the ocean,
But she never came back to me,
She swam the foaming waves,
As far as the eye could see,
And she just kept on going,
Until she met the breeze,
Which picked her up and held her,
As she sailed the forgotten reefs,
And her salt-covered hair,
And wind-born spirits,
Were always out of my reach,
Until she would come back home,
All alone,
Except for her memories,
Which were of misty skies,
And wandering lives,
Forever, and evermore,
One day she was sailing through the rocks,
With their bitter and jagged edges,
When the clouds came down,
And the sea rose up,
Beating her skiff to pieces,
But she merely laughed at the resentful sky,
That frowned down upon her,
And to the churning sea,
She laughed with glee,
Until her wind-born hair,
entered Neptune’s lair,
And the mermaids and the selkies tried to save her as she descended,
But it was her wish,
Her only wish,
To be a part of the sea,
And she never again,
Lifted her head,
To see the people that were doomed to die,
Far from the ocean waves,
And I never again looked forward to the days,
When she would ride the surf home,
For I loved the girl who lived for the ocean,
And left for the everlasting sea,
And I loved the girl, who lived for the ocean,
But she never came back to me,
And she lies still under the sea
