(artist unknown, statue in Berlin)
I will be your mermaid,
Come swim in my deep seas.
Listen to my shell songs,
While dancing fancy and stark free.
We can challenge epic legends,
And prove our salt-air stake.
Beading pearls from oysters,
For our treasured heart’s keepsake.
The seahorses will be our witness,
To our marriage beneath the waves.
Where we will caper and grow spry,
And laugh in secret pirate caves.
Come capture my fabled love, Neptune.
On my playground of shipwrecked vessels.
The sun can streak our tresses,
As moonbeams whisper cheerful freckles.
I will be your mermaid;
And always blow sails of kisses to you above.
Lets swim away together
To live eternal in a sea of our iridescent love.
