MermaidI love the beauty of the sea
Within its depth a part of me
No better where I'd rather be
The only place that I feel free.
To breathe within its briny air
To feel its breath blow back my hair
At the blue horizon stare
That is where you'll find me there.
I hide within its shallow mists
Amongst the sailors and their ships
I follow along on their trips
And sing a song of love and risk.
If they hear me I know naught
Or is it death they come to sought
I tried to save them as I fought
Myself from also getting caught.
After all . . . I love these men
The ones that dream and can pretend
That I am real and can make amend
Their lonely hearts to their bitter end.
