Gay Head Light during Winter Solstice 2007 William Waterway

Perched among the rocks,
A quiet shoreline hides a secret,
Saltwater is dancing in the air,
A sky is smiling down on his soul,
There stands this person,
Stars in his eyes,
Gaze set towards the horizon,
Heart glowing with lunar love,
Light flowing from every pore,
He waits for someone,
Across these waters,
Across time,
He stands as a beacon,
A fixture…a sign,
For whom he waits,
Their soul unknown,
His heart it aches,
He waits and waits,
This beacon immortal,
Withstanding years,
Your lover no longer,
Drowned in his tears.
