Ghosts – She Stood On The Lighthouse - Poem by Paul Warren

Look to the Light house I heard them say
When it is a windy and stormy day
You will see her looking out longing to see
Her love who didn’t return from the cruel sea

You see his warship sailed out to the war
And she stood on the Lighthouse wanting more
Of her true love who stood bravely on the deck
Until the ship steamed to the horizon as a speck

So the war wore on and many were lost
And the country was counting the sad cost
Until one day a telegram came to her hand
It said her true love had been lost with his command

She wouldn’t take the truth of the words written
And waited each day on the Lighthouse driven
Until she died of her broken heart in her sorrow heard
But now on those wintry days she waits keeping her word.
