Friends Together

On the shore of moonlight bay
Mermaid Aura sadly lay
Singing songs of fun and games
Humans she’d met and all their names
Lonely she looked to be
Though her face of golden glee
As I took a closer step
She looked so much more clear
Her tail of rainbow colours
Her voice all I could here
I wished to be a mermaid too
And right beside I lay
Mermaid me and mermaid her
On the shore of moonlight bay
