His voice so soft floated through the Pines as
the sun slowly set; recalling waves of passion
in my mind.
Wholly swirling and inundating my aching heart
from his love lost eons ago,
When the angry sea took him on that violent
night; to where I do not know.
My heart does not beat for another and never will,
I think of no other as I sit upon a sea rock on our
We picnicked on the hill from food collected on his
around the world voyage,
When he left on a storming white capping night his
ship lost its buoyage.
I prayed and waited for the site of his ship riding the
mighty waves back to me, but no avail,
No tears will come---as I no longer wail.
I look no more for the purple and white sail,
I no longer anticipate a letter in the mail.
Now I sit, on my sea rock waiting for him to appear,
I know he will come because my ending is near.
My eyes are watching the thunderous skies as
lightning streaks the dark horizon,
Will he know me as my body has become wizen.
I hear his voice becoming louder,
My waiting heart beat prouder.
By sight and sound his lips touched mine,
Ever so light while sweet chills dance upon my spine.
We soared over our favorite hill and above the pines,
We look so young and fresh, our spirits sparkled like
polished diamonds from his mines.
His ship waited for us to sail for eternity on the seas,
Celebrating the salty air and gentle breezes.
Love never dies,
Don’t believe the lies.

I ponder about so many hearts---calling out---from their watery graves.
Poseidon the Greek God of the sea,
I called to him---many times---bring my Darling Pirate back to me.
You do not need him in your salty waters,
Find other pirates for your saline daughters.
His ship is named after me---Dark Lady---solid vessel of beauty,
And dark because I am sad when he leaves me---for his duty.
Time has gone now---past any family we could create,
Forsaking other men---I still wait.
A hopeless dreamer I am told,
Speaks the uncouth but---extremely bold.
His voice has not faded with the years,
Memories of his dark eyes that shined with love--- brings many tears.
My fingers desire to touch---his masterful lips,
That captured mine---so sweetly—my heart now rips.
Imprinted memories of his arms so strong around my soft frame,
My body recalls the feelings---without shame.
When the lightning strikes over the sea at night,
I can see the Dark Lady riding the waves--- until it is daylight.
I beckon Poseidon to send you to me---for I am very ill,
On this turbulent night---I stand and plead from the highest hill.
And through the breakers appears a sail---with a black flag,
Whipping in the storm---it appeared to be just a rag.
The closer it came---I could see the words---Dark Lady,
Could it be My Darling in the moonlight---just maybe?
His whispers from my heart were loud and clear,
I have come for you---my Sweetheart---my Dear.
My spirit left my old body---I no longer needed---lying
on the foam-covered salty rocks,
My spirit is young and beautiful now---minus all time clocks.
Life is worth living now with my Pirate and me,
Happily we sail---the now tranquil---turquoise sea.
I thanked Poseidon when I saw him years later upon his oceans,
He bowed and waved so full of his own emotions.
My Darling Pirate is by my side,
To kiss and hold me, I am his pride.
Never give up I am thinking,
Watch for your lighthouse---it could be blinking,
To let you know a love is coming---it is not winking.
