One of the most beautiful sounds in all the world is the sound of ocean waves as they rush to meet the shore. Those waters call to me and sing to my spirit. When I am in my sanctuary and among my treasures of the sea, I wait patiently and dream as the creatures of the deep slowly come to whisper their stories to me.
I stroll among the peaceful waves and search for distant shores which lie just beyond my vision. The waters beckon to me and I alone have the spirit to sing their song. My hands cup the cooling waters and splash it's healing powers over my soul. Serenity cocoons my senses and I am home once more.
The night time calls to me and I sway with the rhythm of the waves. Passing ships trumpet their horns in the distance, but they do not see me for I am as still as the darkness which surrounds me. The conch shell touches my lips as the sounds of the sea swirl and sway and dance with my song until I am almost dizzy with happiness. Only the lighthouse beam and the man in the moon know I am here.
If only I could remain with these waters which are my true love. To spend eternity amongst sea and sand. To follow the sea gulls call and go wherever the dolphins may lead me. But alas, it is not meant to be. Mortal flesh and mermaid spirit can not last for long, and I must return to the land of my beginnings. Only to wait 'til the moon rises again and once more the waves call my name...
