An Empty Beach


The early sunrise is heart-warming
It makes me feel like I'm flying without wings
I have enjoyed beaching with you
Today is one of the days we often
Sing the song of love birds in flight
But now I sit on the sand waiting
With no hope of seeing you
I only see an empty beach
Alone and lonely I walk on
The footprint you left behind
I feel like an ugly shell that has washed
Ashore with nobody to take me home
I'm still waiting for the tide
To rise and take me afloat

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
