Walking across a secluded beach

Grains of sand between her toes

Leaving footprints of a broken heart

Washed away as the ebb tide flows


Shaded hands across her brow

Boat drifts slowly out to sea

Searching for one last glimpse

Of a love that was not to be


Shadows of a silhouette moving softly

Casting light by a deft moonbeam

Time and tide wait for no one

But she holds on to her dream
