By the Water

He left one day
to sail out far
and find what riches he may.
He left behind
his bonny lass
promises falling
from his lips
saying he’d return someday.
That bonny lass,
oh she was fair—
her equal you never did see.
She wasted away
standing by the cliff
looking for her love
to pull into the bay.
She spent her whole life waiting.
Waiting from promises
to be fulfilled.
He left,
yet she was the one
to pay.

Prompt: Left Waiting 12/27/16
