Waves

So many years so many hardships

So many laughs so many tears

So many things to remember

Cause they had fifty years

And now the kids have got their own kids

And their own kids, they are grown

She told him not to worry

Said he’d be fine when she was gone

He walks down to the ocean

Bends to touch the water

Kneels to pray

He writes her name

In the sand

Waves wash it away

There are sea gulls circling shrimp boats

That turn inside the bay

There’s an emptiness inside

That never goes away

He walks down to the ocean

Bends to touch the water

Kneels to pray

He writes her name

In the sand

Waves wash it away

So many years so many hardships

So many laughs so many tears

So many things he can not remember

Cause they had fifty years

He walks down to the ocean

Bends to touch the water

Kneels to pray

He writes her name

In the sand

Waves wash it away

He writes her name

In the sand

And waves, they wash it away
