I should have been born a mermaid
To be able to play among the dolphins,
To sing in harmony with the whales,
To surf the currents with the turtles.
Enjoy the everblue surroundings
Watch as the light breaks through
The water
Lighting the stage for the coral
To unveil their vibrant
Show of colors of the lives on
The reef.
Maybe in my next life
I'll be allowed to join the sea life
Making friends with the turtles
Making friends with the whales
Making friends with the dolphins
Connecting with the ocean in the way
I crave to as I look out on the
Everblue.
