The Ghost on the shore.

Sun shines on the water silver fairies dance

The  geese come in to land  watch their webbed feet prance.

The sun is climbing  higher in to the blue blue sky

I stand alone on the beach, alone . I ask myself why.

 

I see the children run along  the beach

I wonder where  they’re headed and if their goals  they’ll reach.

Mums and Dads  follow on with picnics carefully wrapped

Standing here I can only  watch a tormented soul truly trapped.

 

For eons I have stood here only allowed to spectate

All I can do is pray for kindness, all I can do is wait.

Then at last I see him, my child emerging from the sea

He runs to me after all this time we are united and finally both of us are free.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Cold now the water is col,  it was warm at  first

It holds  me down yet  carries me  but it does not quench  my thirst.

I do not thirst  for water only for warmth  and light

It is  so cold and  dark  down here I can’t say if it’s day or night

 

Where is my mum, where has she gone

She was here with me playing why has it all gone wrong.

Years  have come  and years  have gone and yet I am still here

I think I’ll never  feel the sun or sand,  or see my mum again I fear.

 

Then at last  the angel came  and gently lifted  me

In to the sun and the blessed warmth up out of the sea.

I see my  mum standing  there rooted to the spot

I feared she might of left, I am glad  that she has not.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Two souls  at last united  after years and years apart

At peace now united peaceful at last in God’s heart!

        Mmm, it seems to me as if the Mother had passed away and her soul was waiting on the beach for her son, The son dies in a drowning accident and from his perspective is “imprisoned” underwater for a long time before an angel takies him to the surface and onto the beach where he is rejoined with his Mother.

    A touching duet of perspectives of loss and love and the coming together of souls at the end.
