The Dry Ocean

I wonder why the ocean is not dry?
Why, I ask myself? Why, oh why?
I would love to be able to yell or say or cry,
why isn't the ocean dry?

The sand is dry. The rocks are dry.
I sigh... and wonder, why isn't the ocean dry?
For in this scene the ocean waves seem to be.

The soft sand and water looks so relaxing.
It makes me want to lie down.
If anyone asks me why I reply,
Because I'm thinking about why the ocean is.

The dry looking scene makes me want to know
why is the ocean not dry?
