I caught a glimpse of her As the waves crashed against the sand Her hands clenched behind her back Head tipped towards the heavens.
In shock, yes I was The beautiful bride had been long gone For far too long.
I reached out with my withered hand Veins like ivy wrapped around my arm Poking my skin like purple thorns My bones creaked as I took a timid step Hoping for a chance to hold her again.
Ahh yes she was a beauty But not once did she turn to me The warm sun shined on her face Her eyes closed in sweet bliss Her lips moved but not a sound came For the waves crashed and seagulls sang.
I called out for my darling wife My heart ached for many years Long after she departed.
A faint smile full of yearning for yesteryears Wet tears filled my vision As my wife held out a hand Only a suggestion she said But for me it was a command.
Death forced us to part ways But only for a spell As we reunited under the ocean swell At home at last the seagulls sang Home indeed for it had been far too long.
