There was a girl who loved the sea,

Running through its shore.

She thought of the things that she could be,

And how she always wanted more.

How the water always met the sand,

With every breaking wave.

Though she did not have a magic wand,

Still, her all, she gave.

She loved seeing the wide blue sea,

Stretching into the horizon.

How it seemed to stretch to infinity,

There, there was no oblivion.

Her feet sinking into the sand,

Where pebbles and sea shells lay,

She would always hold out her hand,

And in it, yours can always stay.
