OCEAN DEEP

amazing-places-to-see-before-you-die-40

 

THERE WAS A SONG I HEARD

JUST THE OTHER DAY

I PUT CLIFF ON YOUTUBE

AND LISTENED TO IT PLAY

 

FROM MY CRADLE TO MY GRAVE

MUSIC  I WILL HEAR

BUT NO OTHER BETTER SONG

TELLS IT SO SINCERE

 

THE WORDS CLIFF SANG

TOUCHED ME TO THE CORE

CLANDESTINE BEAUTY

THEY SWEEP YOU AND ENTHRALL

 

THEN I FOUND THE POET

WHO WROTE THIS WORK OF ART

AN UNKNOWN SOLDIER

IN MEN HE STANDS APART

 

THE BEST SONG OF MY LIFETIME

TO EVER REACH MY EARS

BUT ALAS I KNOW SO WELL

IT TELLS OF ALL MY FEARS

 

IF GOD SENT RAINDROPS DOWN AS PEARLS

AND WE ALL HAD EQUAL PRIDE

MEN MIGHT CREATE UMBRELLAS OF STEEL

UNDER WHICH WE ALL COULD HIDE

 

BUT GOD SENT RAINDROPS TO DISSOLVE

TO GROW THE ROSE SO SWEET

AND GAVE ONE MAN THE TALENT

TO WRITE OCEAN DEEP!
