Poetry and Lyrics

1976 to 1977
Senior Year - High School



Sunset Beach

My sister told me
sand is made
from sea-shell particles
A sage once told me
you can hear the lull
when someone drowns
At Sunset Beach

And the lifeguard stands
immobile today
My soul sees
my body washed away
At Sunset Beach

A seagull flies
and writes in the sky
I wonder why
someone died

And I stand
unable to move
someone drowns

The seagull lands
down from the sky
Tell me why
I had to die
At Sunset Beach

The sand is made
of shell particles
Listen to the waves
and hear the lull
As I drown
At Sunset Beach

Yes, the lifeguard
is immobile today
My spirit sees
my body washed away
