Son & Dad & Whalesharks
Go, go go!" We jumped on in
Not sure what was below.
"Stick your mask in.
Look straight ahead."All went silent
Like life was dead.
And suddenly there it was.
This massive creature came in view.The biggest fish in the ocean
and the most gentle too.
And there we still wereSwimming next to it in shock.It was a whole new world
And time seemed to stop.
I don't know how long it was
How long we shared that spaceBut the feeling was unreal
Something that can't be replaced.
Dwarfed by its size
I remembered feeling smallBut being in its presence
Left me in awe.
But unfortunately for us
The swim had to conclude.We let it move on
In the ocean blue
