By the edge of sea and land we live

When you came back from your summer home

You did not know that happy life was gone

The spouse you loved would never lust again

The two of you to be no more as one

Standing on the seashore full of joy

The end of life then absent from your mind

We cannot live with fear we must forget

Never read beyond the final line

When you drove away the final day

Full of sun your happiness was plain

You did not know you’d reached the final jump

And of the two the lonely one the remain.

The shock the trauma of the accident

Leaves just you alone in this torment

On the edge of sea and land we live.

Our hearts ache with the love we cannot give
