High Above the Foam Swept Shore

I remember well that moonlit night
My eyes were touched with a second sight
I had come to face a lonely death
To find my peace in a dying breath

As is the case so often thought
The last place I looked I would have caught
The one so long been searching for
High above the foam swept shore

I assumed I'd travelled everywhere
For one I know was always there
And in each eye a blazing star
This time they did not seem so far

She raised me high into her hands
Lifted me up and made me stand
To fly across the boundless skies
I could only stare into her eyes

Inside I saw where sorrow slept
So many tears that she had wept
Into the cold and salty sea
Never again to be for me

She set me down in a field of snow
Then i saw that she meant to go
Such a feeling to realize
The last I'd look into her eyes

I cried to the heavens from my soul
That she'd come back to make me whole
And as I screamed into the night
I saw two stars shining bright

And though my heart felt so hollow
I just knew I had to follow
The path that stretched far from view
The path that led me here to you

Standing so proud with you my love
Eyes as brilliant as those above
That keep there vigil forevermore
High above the foam swept shore
