Across the Sea


While traveling all over the world
There’s so much that you can see
Across the expanse of ocean
So different traditionally

The art work and the cultures
Are as diverse as night and day
Everyone casts a flavor
They all have something to say

Food can be the same everywhere
But in such a different style
If only you can take the time
And stay for a little awhile

We learn that people are much the same
Although in a different way
With hopes and dreams to yet fulfill
And regrets of yesterday

You can look into the faces
No matter where people are
And know what they’re probably feeling
Whether they live near or far

So where ever you go in travel
Learn as much as you can
Cultures are so fascinating
As the generations span!
