The Fisherman's Farewell

As the pearl fishers mournfully depart
Pain claws at the void and empty heart

A pool of sadness at your feet
The swirling vastness of your grief
Love broken on the rocky reef
No more strolling arm in arm along the street
When the grass was so green the sky so blue.

The frame now cracked and broken
The last words of deepest love spoken
Just a grain of sand
As the slow march band
Follows the soul tossed onto the eternal beach
The adoring heart now out of reach
As the pearl fishers sing farewell hand in hand
