For rent a walk along a shore ........Verse

There is so much to contemplate in life
or should I say there is for me
from our origins to our very last destination
life .........
what is this mystery

do we walk alone and simply live it alone
with a heart all unchained
some of us cannot stand
to be alone
is solitude so unnatural ?

do you have someone to walk with there
in the sand and salty shore
What about in the
trials of this life
to walk alone forever more?

imagine one who remains alone all though
this magic journey
and then dies alone the same way
in the end
by wish or by choice

while another cannot stand to be alone
which one are you or am I
I have wondered long
but wandered too
as life ambles by

The only thing for certain at least it is for me
is a constant and consistent craving
I feel it on this rocky
shore and in
the sandy winding pathes

How much do you owe me
Oh but I was only kidding
I just wanted someone to walk with
thank you for being there

To walk alone can be a good thing if one wants to contemplate life ... or sad if one is always alone. I usually walk alone - but, it was nice to walk with you, Ed, on this rocky shore and in the sandy winding pathes. Thank you for this moment.

To walk alone is a time for reflection but loneliness can creep in and spoil the journey. Looking at the ocean always brings a feeling of wonder for me. Beautiful verse Ed!

Walking alone gives me pause for reflection. If I am not feeling lonely then being alone helps me to get inspiration from music and from the things around me like nature. Wish the seashore was closer to me then I would be there everyday.
