After “Tomorrow Morning,” Edward Wadsworth, 1929-44

The blue sky hangs over the wooden

dock

 

While the waves roll toward it in

from of the lighthouse

 

A sailboat moves across the bay as

twilight approaches

 

You can see the first star of night

shining in the distance

 

A lonely fishing lure lays on the dock

abandoned by the fisherman from earlier

today

 

The jetty feels lonely now that the

day is done

 

But there is also the excitement of

another day to come

 

and the new adventures that lie

ahead

 

The tides of people come with the

seasons

 

It’s lonely through the night of winter

 

And busy and exciting during the

days of summer

 

People come and go and grow and

move on

 

Some will be back next year while

some will move on with their lives

 

We won’t know who is which

until the next season of our lives begins
