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!

OHHHHH

So sad this one Felix.

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

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.

Susan
