I stand here looking at the bay
My mind wanders to that day
You were here with me then
My love, my soulmate, and my friend
Our love was pure and sweet
All my needs you did meet
I thought it would always be
Forever you, forever me

I start to walk along the shore
Listening to the roar
Of the waves on the rocks
Watching them engulf the docks
In my eye a small tear forms
It is shed for the storms
That led us to this place
Our footsteps I retrace

My heart holds the memory dear
Of what happened just last year
Late at night the storm was raging
Was a play that we were staging
Our love was plain to see
That night on the balcony
Nature lashed out all around
But to each other we were bound


 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

So wistfully sweet, Lone Wolf. This brought beautiful images to mind.

Stunning !
What heart-felt emotions.

'In my eye a small tear forms
It is shed for the storms
That led us to this place
Our footsteps I retrace'

Tracing the footsteps can be
so difficult when they have
been washed away by the storm.
Perhaps the storm rages within.

Ah...Lone you write so soft and sweet, I can almost feel like I am there beside you having conversation with you one on one, you have a unique way of expressing your heart  
Sorry you had to endure such pain.... If you ever need a friend, to talk to about this pain let me know we can't have to many girlfriends ya know!


 "Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O,no! it is an ever-fixed mark....William Shakespeare

Marie, I think we all know them at one time or another.  It is what is in my heart.

Elizabeth, sweet images for me too.  They are beautiful memories and will be cherished always.

Sven, thank you.  They will live forever in my mind.  It was a wonderful night and my favorite place.

Hoot owl, Thanks....they just came to me and seemed a fitting end.

Marge, thank you....and yes, the storm does rage within also.  The footsteps are not quite gone yet though.  Maybe it isn't too late.  we will see.

Tess, I try to do my best.  Thank you.

RH, what a wonderful compliment.  Perhaps we could do that sometime.  I sit down and it just comes out....the only way I know how.  You ill hear from me soon, my friend.  Thank you!!!
