  • Walk with me awhile, along this beach at soft gray dawn
    Talk with me awhile, I’ll sit silently to hear the sound
    Sit with me awhile, as the waves roll ever steadily home
    I feel you in this moment, now, no longer am alone

    This time is so much different now, than any time before
    You always were the reason that we came to this fine shore
    An ache, a miss, pervades the landscape of a family’s soul
    Orphans now, we share as one, the love that was your goal.
