He Sits Upon the Rock


He sits upon the rock

And stares into the sea

Remembering a time

When he was young

In love and with new

Wife and a child and

One on the way, he smiles

It was upon this very rock

He had decided to leave

His tropical Island home

Remembering the good old days

Then he recalls back to his first time

When he came to sit upon this rock

Yes he was so young back then

He tells me how he hopes one day

His children and grandchildren

Will one day sit upon this same rock?

And contemplate life just like he did

Aah yes this rock will have meaning

For my children my grandchildren

And my greats…should they ever

Come to this place…and remember me

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
