Standing on the beach, I'd known this time would come; the man I'd taken for my lover has returned to his one and only love. I'd had him for an instant, my heart so full of joy, but it was the sea who held him, who made his life complete. I could fight another woman, win his affections for a while, but never could I challenge the waves throughout all time. He'd come to me when needing contact from another soul, but now he'd returned to the depths that gave him so much more. Some may say that I'd been foolish for taking him to breast, but never could they understand t'was for me, I'd not been brash. He's left me little console, but given me so much--the joy of his presence, the rapture of his touch. So while the sea may take him, he'll live onward in my heart. I suffer from his leaving but was nourished by his love.
