Once I was a beautiful shell Giving life to the creatures of the sea Tides and time pounded on me, breaking

me bit by bit Then I was stuck nowhere to go... The barnacles found a place to dwell But Mother Ocean gave me a second chance The tides washed me upon the shore There I lay waiting in the sun, dull and chipped and ugly Then, you came along and found me The barnacles were picked, the sand washed off You polished me up and brought out my luster... I'm still chipped with imperfections But you laid me out for everyone to see... The beautiful colors inside me Now I'm shiny with colors and gold The tides have yet to see me grow old With the tenderness and care you gave me I am once again a beautiful shell
