Ashes in the Wind
i hold you close in my arms

As we take our last stroll

Down the beach


With seagulls screeching overhead

And waves crashing

And thrashing towards the shore

My eyes well-up

And tears stream down my face

An overwhelming sense of sadness

Takes hold of me

And as we climb the mountainous sands

I think about the sound of your laughter

I remember our first piggyback ride

And the first time that we danced


I wonder why the more i learn

The more i realize

How much i don't know

As we reach the top of the cliff

I stand still

Mesmerized by the beauty

Of the deep blue sea

And calmed by the peaceful

Breaking waves

As i open your urn

My hands shake

With sadness and pain

I remove your ashes from

Your temporary home

And toss them into the wind

Ashes in the wind

Ashes in the wind

Then i bury your urn

In one of our favorite nooks

Deep in the sand on the cliff

So that traces of you will forever be

Part of La Jolla Beach

Then i trudge back to the shore below


Then i realize that your ashes

Are swirling all around me

Blowing in the wind

Then i feel joy in knowing

That you are free

From your earthly shell

And that you will find me

When my time comes

Until then

I know that our love will last

As we move from this life to the next

And so i wait

To see your face once again

And when i do

I will remember that


Our love is stronger

Than a waking giant

And it will endure

Until the end of time

Ashes in the wind

Ashes in the wind
