Word Bank Challenge -- Sea Swept
There's No Hiding from the truth, I miss her terribly.
I remember a time, not so long ago, when she and I
ran barefoot on the beach, Swept Up by our love.
She was everything to me, beautiful long blonde hair,
big brown eyes, a lovely figure and teeth that were dazzling
white and perfect, Like Nature's pearls. Yes, she was
young, beautiful and mine. And now, she was gone and
I was lost.
We'd walk the beach, go digging for clams, then start a
fire, bake them up, some bread, a little wine and a feast....
Oh, I'd give anything For That Taste, again. I'd give
 everything to have her back with me.
I tried to start fresh, tried for some semblance of Balance
in my life. I thought that in time, I would get A Better Grip
and go on with my life. No such luck. I bummed around for
six months, trying to forget good. I finally decided that
I had to get my ass in gear.
I bought a small bungalow, along the Seaswept Cliffs,
where she and I used to roam, when we weren't on the beach,
clamming by day, making love by night. I started a boat building
business, small skiffs for the local fishermen. It was a good
lucrative little business and I kept busy up to sixteen hours a day,
sometimes. I was working on this one particular dory, sanding the
hull, Smoothing The Sides, when I was interupted by someone,
I thought that the sun had gotten to me, when I saw who was standing
there, smiling at me....beautiful long blonde hair, big brown eyes,
a lovely was her!!

Truly lovely

This is nice, almost brought me to my knees.  My wife and I used to spend hours on the Oregon beeches collecting rocks  and memories to bring home and polish.  Nice memories.
