THE OLD LIGHTHOUSE

Written by: Cyndi MacMillan

The old lighthouse has many shadows,
though it once cast welcome light, 
waves on the coast and a weeping ghost
echo laments in the dead of night.

The old lighthouse still has a keeper, 
Though no keeper there now stays,
waves on the coast and a weeping ghost
slowly erode deception away.

The old lighthouse shields a dark secret,
though bloodstains will never lie,
waves on the coast and a weeping ghost
denounce a near perfect alibi. 

The old lighthouse no longer searches,
though the sea forever pounds, 
a weeping ghost and waves on the coast 
reveal why his wife was never found.
