Standing on the shore, waves all around,
I look out to sea, but canít hear a sound,
A presence anew like a ghost from the past,
Lost and confused, I donít think Iíll last,
Waiting by day, crying by night,
Long flowing tears, blinding my sight,
Grief takes over my soul and my heart,
It seems an eternity that weíve been apart,
Since you left my days are all sorrow,
A never ending dream of no hope for the morrow,
I wander around, afraid and alone,
No light in my eyes where once it had shown,
The wind in my face, a candleís soft glow,
When the rain pours down, to my window Iíll go,
Hoping to see you come up the shore,
An end to my suffering, to grieve no more,
Iíll wait forever to see you my sweet,
I cherish your arrival with every heartbeat,
But after some time, reality will set in,
I remain brokenhearted, nowhere to begin,
Youíre gone for all time, to come back to me no more,
Iíll walk for all time on this desolate shore...

As the dawn breaks, and the shadows flee away...

widow's walk

I enjoyed the lyricism in this piece, as well as your excellent use of imagery. I'm reminded of tales of sailor's wives standing on the widow's walk staring longingly out to see.

Excellent work you have here. I'll be looking forward to more.

A man who knows of the shores of loneliness...I'm waiting for my Alice as well.
