The Cottage and the Sea

She listened to music each morning
She read by soft lights at night
The summer she stayed in the bright yellow cottage
Down by the deep blue sea

Each day she sat on the beach
Picking at shells and foam
Her needs were small for she came to stay
In hopes of reclaiming her soul

The day came when she cried out loud
At last she let it all go
She sat in the rain next to the sea
Asking what would become of her

Tell me what I should do she prayed
Please send me a sign so I’ll know
If you can’t do this for me then take me now
For I can’t go on anymore

The answer came from a stranger
Who sat on the beach that day
A stranger who came to save her life
And never turn her away

For you see she was the stranger
She learned to reclaim her soul
That summer she stayed in the bright yellow cottage
Down by the deep blue sea
