The little mermaid’s dreams were kept
And nestled tenderly…
Her Father’s Kingdom full of grace
And wonders rarely known
Were not enough to take the place
Of dreams she called her own…

The little mermaid made her way,
From water to the land,
Where one man took her breath away
The day he held her hand…
Two beating hearts were now as one,
With joy more than enough,
Beneath God’s brilliant golden sun,
Where lovers fall in love…

The young man smiled, for he had found,
A treasure trove divine,
More beautiful than all around,
In her, his Valentine…
The little mermaid’s dreams came true,
He kissed her once, then twice,
The day he told her, ‘I love you! ‘
Was simply Paradise…
