I went to visit Fee yesterday and we went as far as the beach for a run, seemed like the perfect day for pictures. I couldn't resist this one.
A Stranger by the Seashore
Written by: Rose Marie Rideout
While walking along the seashore late in the afternoon,
I spotted a stranger, playing a gentle sad tune.
I watched from a distance, so he wouldn’t see,
A stranger watching through tears that stranger being me.
I listened to the words, of his sad lonely song,
Why he lost his love, what had he done wrong,
Why life had set him back time after time,
A stranger by the seashore with a face gentle and kind.
I could feel the hurt he held deep in his heart
As his broken words asked ‘”how did all this heartache start”?
I wanted to hold him, it seemed only fair,
This stranger should know that someone do care.
It was so cold and damp that day as he sat so all alone,
I wanted so much to talk to him and invite him to my home.
Then I saw him looking off in the distance, all alone,
I felt his heart breaking through tears and a slight moan.
His hands began to quiver as he tried so hard to strum,
His tears flowed like a river as he tried so hard to hum,
A stranger by the the seashorethe hurt that filled his heart,
Wondering in his mind, “How did all this heartache start”?

|I wouldn't imagine Fee otherwise, the one and only giving life a meaning through a melancholic tune...

|You captured the mood of the moment Rose for as I sat on that stone and began strumming a few chords my mind and heart were heavy and drifting off into another time, another place. It also seems we both liked this picture best of all the ones we took for I too used it in my posting...lol
