Umi Sono Ai is a beautiful, beloved Japanese song that tells of a man who goes to the ocean to reflect upon his life. In each wave he sees opportunity. Though the retreat of each wave may reflect his failures, a new wave of hope soon appears. It carries him, it lifts him, and it sends him toward his destiny.
