Here I am in a vast ocean
With millions and millions of drops like me
Some just big enough to cause ripples
And some big enough to raise waves.
My stay here won’t be long
I shall be pushed farther and beyond
Day in and day out
And simply mingle and get lost
Who shall ever see my face again?
Or count how many pearls I’ve left ashore?
I shall rise and fall again
And then simply move on.
