GOODBYE… a poem

man standing near ocean grayscale photography

Adrift on the outgoing tide

While I stood on the moonlit sands

Emotions that I couldn’t hide

Streams of tears pouring through my hands

The years we had together were kind

More than that – a fairytale come true

But when nature made up her mind

Instead of me she came and took you

So, with a vow I had promised to keep

Into the ocean your ashes swim free

As the horizon brings on the new day

A man stands alone – that’s me
