Each morning when I take a walk,
Along the ocean's shore,
I think about my life with you,
Could I have loved you more?
The gentle sea breeze caresses me,
I feel your presence here,
The sun so warm upon my face,
As I wipe away a tear.
I find a piece of driftwood,
And a pretty shell or two,
Draw a heart upon the sand,
And whisper, "I love you."
I watch the surf erase my heart,
And take it out to sea,
Blow a kiss into the wind,
And say, "To you, from me."
