Standing by the shore


I did stand by the shores of the sea and looked out for Him, waiting for His return, all summer.
Others came by and told me I was stupid, told me He would not return to me, too long had been the time.

Would He love me, He would not have left me they said.
But I waited, I believed in His words.

All His words had always been true, I could always count on Him.
He had said that He would return to me at the end of the summer, and I did believe.

The end of the summer came, but He did not, no sign, no message.
I sent a little bird out, to fly to the faraway shores, to look for my Love.

And the bird returned with a message from my beloved One.
He was not coming.

Not now, maybe never, He didn’t really know.
The whole summer I had stood by the ocean to wait for Him.

I had neglected my house, I had neglected my garden.
I had believed in His promise to return to me.

I returned to my village to find the roof of my house broken in and destroyed, my garden overgrown with weeds.
No shelter I could find, no food had grown in my garden.

And now the winter comes, with storms and cold, and I have no home, no place to rest my head.
The winter comes without mercy, and I have no choice than to submit myself to its cold and its storms, without food, without shelter.

I can only pray to survive this Winter.
And I of course have been a fool.


About blue

I am a divorced single mum to a teenage kid, and at present re-emigrating to my homecountry Germany. Writing helps me to clear my thoughts, but as well to turn sadness, fear, and regret into something beautiful and release it from my heart.
