Girl In The Window


He placed the ring upon her tiny finger

With bended knee professed his heart

They kissed and held each other tenderly

Knowing with the dawn they’d have to part


He told her that the tides would take him out

That the tides would return him safe to her

He told her his ship was master of sea

Be home in one month she could be sure


The days went by and then the weeks

Then the weeks turned to a month gone by

More days, more weeks, another month

No word, she’d just stare out to sea and cry


She’d call his name onto the wind

Hoping it would carry her love safely to his side

She clung to the his promise of his return

Till a message came that said he’d lied


Never found his body, just wreckage strewn about

A picture floated on a piece of driftwood

Of the girl he sadly left behind

Looking it seems out to sea

For something she won’t find!

So sad this one Felix.

I've heard so very much of lost loves with the sea. Check out

Now she was dedicted so much to her love that she met every ship that came into Savannah by waving her white towel...the signal she promised to have when her love came back to fetch her. He never returned but she continued to be faithful and died in her 80's. Her name was Florence Martin...The Waving Girl of Savannah.

You must have tapped into her as your Muse. She would be proud.
