He stands upon the precipice
Where once an angel flew.
Who'd given him "maiden's promise"
That love would remain true.
Staring out across the ocean
And down to the crashing waves.
Feeling the mist of emotion
From the memory he saves.
He had loved her, loved her desire,
But it was her own despise.
She held as a shame to her Sire,
In looking from his eyes.
He looked back to the fallen ruin,
Their castle built on sand.
Where by the glow of a lover's moon,
She had refused his hand.
He remembers watching in chains
While she stood upon the ledge.
His screams swallowed by swirling rains,
In her forgotten pledge.
Now the ocean calls him with her voice,
A soft, seductive lure.
A beckoning of no real choice
For love once felt so pure.
As the sun crests the horizon,
In the dawn of a new day.
It's but her memory that flies on,
He just turns and walks away.
All peace within him knowing
Though her echoes may never rest...
Love awaits him where he's going,
He had given her his best.
'Tis true, Love lasts forever,
Only her memory slips away.
