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 

January 22,2010
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”?

Aw, this is beautiful Rose. It's a wonderful thing that you and Fee are close to each other. There's nothing like a loving shoulder when things aren't going well. This is a very nice picture of Fee. Hope you both had a wonderful day!
