Submerged in the depths of the Ocean,
I sink in overwhelming emotion.
What care in the world for me can there be
when I am here, alone in the sea.

The swirling, storming, crashing wave
pushes me and swallows me to the grave,
but I see the depression that causes despair
is broken by the gleam of light that you share.

Skittering across the surface water,
only a sight was of what I caught her.
