Riddle Me This:

I am filled with tears,
But you won't see me cry;
I've been known for years,
But unexplored am I;
Below, the light clears,
But my face appears high.

Tomorrow, I'll have tears,
Yet again, I will not weep;
I have sounds without ears,
And a bed without sleep.
When the air volunteers,
It joins the company I keep.

My tears are like yours,
As they are salty, also blue,
But a drop never pours,
Down a pair of cheeks due,
Unless you bury all fours,
For when uncovered, that they do.

But what does "all fours" mean?
Well, I've mentioned one with two.
The clues are pretty clean,
But there's one more I must tell you:
My name is heard when seen,
But damn the sound of W.

This is a pretty long riddle, as I have not made a riddle in nearly a week. As for that, I have also provided a hint, but made it a little fun. The answer can be two different words, but they literally mean the exact same thing, so no need to fear — that is, if you can find the answer in the first place.

Let's see.


Hint:

You might also find some green,
That looks like grass (this much is true).
My pets are all ______,
And my growing plants, ___.

Ocean sounds, and the ocean bed of sand?

When the air volunteers, It joins the company I keep.

Maybe a hurricane.

Salt water, not fresh.

But a drop never pours, Down a pair of cheeks due,

Unless you bury all fours, For when uncovered, that they do.

Indian, Pacific, Atlantic, and Arctic.

I am not sure but there are four oceans.

Waves?
