The velocity of waves crashing hard upon those shores –
tearing walls and smashing doors.
No more do lullabies echo softly through the halls.
No more tender embraces.
No more love’s furtive glances.
The wine glasses once toasted to health and long life,
all shattered in shards; strewn across the ocean floor.
Sturdy bricks laid to build a foundation strong –
now broken and irretrievably lost.
Home sweet home no more.
