She Walked the Beach at Midnight   Leave a comment


by Elizabeth Huff

 

She walked the beach at midnight,

searching for her love.

She found him in a darkened cove;

the moon was bright above.

 

He was sitting by the seaside,

lost in shadowed thought.

His eyes were on the water,

of which shipwrecks are wrought.

 

She came and sat beside him,

and took him by the hand.

She told him that she loved him;

that she would understand.

 

He walked the beach at midnight,

weight lifted from his heart.

He walked the mile back to town;

new life about to start.

 

She watched him walk away that night,

and she faded with the dawn.

A lonely soul made bittersweet,

now able to move on.
