Garden/Story

                       
'GARDEN BY THE SEA'
In our garden by the sea,
the wind whispers your love to me.
 
 The sun and I play hide and seek,
Amid the stones and statues, it gently peeks.
Down the gravel path it leads me,
past the Cherry Blossom tree,
where the birds stop to greet me.
 
In our garden by the sea,
the sun and the wind, bring your love to me.

Between the Bonsai trees I pause
to feel your warm embrace,
sent from a distant shore.
On and on I go,
round the tiny temple, where the Iris' grow.

In our garden by the sea,
the wind whispers your love to me.

In the salted jasmine air, my longing stirs.
Looking out across the sunlit sea,
I watched you sail, away from me.
From our shaded bamboo seat,
I'll watch you sail on back to me.
