Lost In The Huge Waves - Poem by Francis Duggan

Lost in the huge waves of the white surfing bay
So tragic to lose their only child in this way
Their beautiful dark haired daughter she was only nineteen
Her best days in life she had not even seen
She had been surfing in waters where predators abound
'Tis said she was taken by a shark her remains were not found
Though four years in time since that day have gone
For her grieving parents the heartache lives on
The beautiful young woman whose grave is the sea
Today is her birthday she would be twenty three
One who loved surfing she died doing what she liked best
When the sun o'er the bay was setting in the west
The grief with her parents till death will remain
Of the daughter in the flesh they will not see again.
