Waiting at the sea shore

Lamp held aloft

Waiting for her soul mate

Of him, she wants more

In the distance, she sees him

Rowing towards her light

The chasm between them

Not her only fright

Her tether holds her

Of it

She’s not yet free

She longs to get away

From it

She desires to flee

She tugs at her tether

But it

Won’t let her go

Her heart belongs to another

This, she let’s her tether know

Slowly,  she’s released

Her tether still and calm

She rushes to her lover

Enveloped in his arms
