And the marble boy
was brought in with the tide
His naked body on the shore
like an embryo curled on his side

I had waited oh so long
For an answer from the sea
I had nearly lost my hope
That Mother Nature loved me.

As I walked down to the beach
And I found him there, asleep
My heart, a collector of beautiful shells
Turned into a glass case for him

I took him home into my arms
And layed his heavenly body inside
A bed of wood and white

It was as dark as the bottom of the ocean
Just the sheets on him glowed in the dark,
I lit candles and adored him all night

When the big wave came
I got washed out to the sea
Maybe one day still
The marble boy will dream of me.
