WOMAN ON THE BEACH
and post notes and photos about your poem like Tom Cunningham.
At the water's edge I just sit and stare
Can't help but think that life's unfair
It has been a year since the tragedy
When my true love was taken from me.
Every single day that now passes by
Doesn't ease my heartbreak and I cry
A car accident took my soul mate's life
And I was going to be his loving wife .
My whole world collapsed one year ago
The police knocked my door to tell me so
They broke the news, said that he'd died
In his hospital bed I kissed him and cried.
Now only fond memories with me remain
I think of them often to help ease my pain
That magical moment we sat on the sand
He smiled at me and asked for my hand.
I said " I will " and for hours we talked
Then along the shore for miles we walked
Sunsets we'd watch and he'd hold me tight
And moonlit swims on a warm June night.
My friends have been good and supported me
But I can't let go and don't want to be free
I want him to live on in my mind and heart
I know that if I grieve we may drift apart.
