The Mourning Bride




New dawn, new day. She stands, arms held out wide.

Hair gently flowing, The mourning bride.

"My love...my love"... her tearful cry,

She looks toward the golden sky.

"When will you return...?"

"What, of your fate, will I learn?"


The ocean waves come to comfort her,

lapping gently, to show they care.

Her tears fall softly, to their swell.

They know the answer,

but refuse to tell.


"Come with us", whisper the spirits of the sea.

"Be together for eternity".

"He waits for you to join him, by his side",

"To be his beautiful golden, morning bride".


As the waves creep in, beneath the sun.

The tearful lady, she has gone.

No one knows if she found her love,

but the sun shines brighter, high above.

The golden ocean turns to blue,

singing songs of love,

Forever true...

Interesting write. I think that the rhyme is making some limits to this poem. It reminds me of my old style, the subject I mean, dark and sad. I enjoyed reading it.
