Turning of the Tide

Tale of the sea


TURNING OF THE TIDE

 

 

She waits alone on the quayside

For her love to be by her side

For her anguish she cannot hide

Now is the turning of the tide

 

He went to sea forty days ago

She now waits for his ship to show

Was just a short trip he implied?

Now is the turning of the tide

 

The horizon is free and clear

She waits for the one she holds dear

She wrings her hands and her heart cried

Now is the turning of the tide

 

As a sail was sighted off land

Eyes turned to the sea she did stand

So his ship pulled along the quayside

Now is the turning of the tide

 

But her love was not to be found

For his soul lay deep in the sound

For her love she bitterly cried

Now is the turning of the tide

 

For now she walks off all alone

So now she heads back to their home

To bring her family up with pride

Now is the turning of the tide

Sad little ditty it happened all to often.
