He lives near the dock,

And watches the ships go by,

Waiting for her,

And never questions why

Does he still wait,

Staring out to sea,

Hoping for the return

Of his beloved selkie.

The selkie,

She longed to be free,

She wanted to go home,

Back to the sea.

She missed her man,

She loved him still,

But she belonged in the sea,

And she always will.
