OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK / WALT WHITMAN

Out of the rolling ocean
The crowd came a voice
Whispering “I love you
Before long I must go”

I’ve come a long, long way
Merely to look on you
I could not go till I found you

Behold the ocean and the land
Hear the music of the storm
No one can separate us

Now we have met
We have look’d
We are safe
Return in peace to the ocean
I too am part of the sea
