In the chaos of the night,
As the wide-Eyed owl takes flight,
A cry for help, Drowned out by wind,
Is heard by none that can defend.
For as the light spins 'round and 'round,
And as the lighthouse stands its ground,
A fair young maiden, to her death,
Will fall as she takes her last breath.
She was not pushed, though she was found
Lying on the cold hard ground
On her own she took the plunge,
Stood so still and then she lunged
Down to the rocks damp from the tide
And just because she'd be a bride
To a sailor off at sea
Who, before he left, got on one knee
And told her she was his whole life
And asked her if she'd be his wife
She said she would and set a date,
The fourteenth at the time of eight.
She waited for him to return,
As her love inside her burned.
Until the clock chimed twelve, she prayed
For five more minutes, struck, she stayed.
Then she rose up from her chair,
And cut off all her long blonde hair,
And did the deed to end her life,
The only way to end her strife
While out at sea, the storm subsides,
No longer fate will it divide
As he draws near, just after dawn,
He wonders why the light is on.
His fiancé cannot be seen
No more do his eyes show a gleam
As he walks around the other side
And sees what would have been his bride
He screams out to the vast blue sea
And says, "Why'd you do this to me?
You slowed my boat you made her wait
And now she's dead because I'm late."
He took his knife and held it high
Then stabbed himself and began to cry
"Why did she not wait for me?
This proves she had no loyalty."
As he bled onto the rocks
He looked to his boat at the dock
He said goodbye to his dear friend
And then his life came to an end.
