The Winds of Change

Siting on the shore with Gillians at your back
And a beautiful girl at your side
The wind gently rolls over her moist skin
Change is on its way
You look into her eyes and kiss her so gently
Change is on its way and it doesn't always announce its arrival
It owes no homage to man, women or beast
Then one day you reach for her
She reaches back to San Anton'
Ah yes, the winds of change can be a Nor Eastern
The winds of change have taken her
Yet it is only in me that I failed to predict the winds
And for my neglect I am forever haunted by
The winds of change

About this poem

Something lost never to return because of me. An evening near the Atlantic City beach.
