A poem about feeling small and helpless in a lonely, dark world.
A small light shines on my face
on a dark beach, it's an empty place.
No one to share this evening.
No one to know what I'm feeling.

How long has love lost me?
I'm just a pebble on this beach,
a lifetime of love's just out of reach,
waiting for The One to wrest me free.

I'm just a pebble in this sand,
looking for the tender, loving hand
to pick me up and put me in her pocket.
I'm the missing face inside her locket.

How long has love lost me?
The small light fades into another dawn,
my illuminated audience now gone.
I'm just a pebble in this crusted sand.

The sea wakes beneath the skies,
putting salty tear drops in my eyes
before I am able to suddenly see
there is a pearl resting next to me.
