On the ocean there was a wave.
Strong and beautiful it lay.
Then a mighty wind gave it stir,
To rise and walk the seas.
Across the seas it marched
Leaving no sign in its wake.
But soon it hit land where the earth became sand.
The force of this wave,
Left not much to save.
But the destruction makes way for new growth,
As we learn to see what has true worth.
As we begin a new, the greater we shall become.
