Cape May - Poem by Phil Major

She sports the sand around her
Like a wedding gown
Her hair-like waves flow constant
Creating a most tranquil sound
The gentle hands of her breeze
Greets your face like a long lost friend
The sun nestles on her horizon
Bringing the day to a glorious end

Foot prints embedded on her silky skin
Perhaps left by two lovers
Holding hands under purple sky
Professing their love to one another
Or maybe they were made by father and son
Walking off one of mom’s big meals
Maybe just two close friends
Sharing how each other feel

Whose they are, I will never know
Where did my footprints go

This was probably as close to heaven
That I will ever see
A temporary taste of paradise
Had introduced herself to me
They say once her sand gets in your shoes
You’ll always want to stay
Now I know that myth is true
I long for you…
Cape May

I fell in love with her at first sight
I admired how she was so free
I left my heart there on the sand
For her waves to take out to sea
I’ll most likely will never see her again
I have her scent etched in my mind
The magic I felt when I was there
I know again I will never find

With all your grace and beauty
I’ve got your spirit in my veins
I shed a tear wishing you were near
Her sand in my shoes remain
I will never forget you
Knowing you can’t be replaced
May the waves continue to caress you
My your beauty hold fast on your face

Now every time I feel lonely
And need to run away
In my heart, I’ve a place to hide
In my heart resides….
Cape May
