Her Love is Strong

Upon the eerie shores of night
As waves come crashing on the sand
She stands there waiting, hoping, strong
For one true love, seafaring man

With shawl there wrapped around her tight
With eyes so staring, wand’ring the sea
She prays he return to her, her heart
For his was love, so meant to be

She’ll wait there for an eternity
For an eternity

As breaths so time her nightly wait
She whispers softly on the breeze
With hopes he’ll come, with open arms
When hears her voice, there on the sea

Albeit, she waits, her love is strong
For him, whose mistress is the sea
She’ll stand to greet him upon return
There, on the shore, is where she’ll be

She’ll wait there for an eternity
For an eternity

She endures time and distance until his return, her true love

    This is so beautiful and I could not help but to think of an oil painting I have in my house of a woman standing on a lonely beach and staring longingly out to sea……so very haunting and lovely. xxx

  • Thank you, I believe this was inspired by a painting much like the one you have. Michael
