Your daughter, the empty shore...

I’m just an empty shore
Forgotten and left to bake
In the sun
By your passing.

I’m just another land
In this bleak world you left behind,
A land words cannot speak of,
A place you cannot see.

My waves roar and howl 
For time has delayed
You from kissing 
My blossomed palms.

I’m just an empty shore
Waiting for you to 
Harvest the sand
That creases my brow.

I’m just a naked coast,
Remote, in the deepest sea,
For the skies forbid you
From reaching my salty rocks.

I’m just a lonely beach
Dressed in briny tears
From the clouds 
You hung above.  

I’m just an empty shore
On which my footprints
Will always cry
Your leave.

    A great take on the elegy here. The poem is paced out well enough to capture that sense of loss and how it impacts. I don't know why you feel the need to put © at the end. It looks pretentious. your work is already copyrighted and owned by you.
