My Songs (written by the webmaster)

(Lyrics by Jerome A. Holst, © 1987)

Verse Off a rocky crest in New England
Where the land it touches the sea
Soars a silent, silvery seagull
Winging its way to me
It comes in the dark of September
And circles high up above
I know it's the soul of Maria
Telling me of her love
I once loved a girl named Maria
She lived down by the sea
I once loved a girl named Maria
God took her away from me.
I remember the day I left Spain
Maria stood in the soft summer rain
I watched her wave till there was nothing to see
And thought of the day she'd soon come to me
I arrived on the shores of this strange land
I walked the dirt, and the rocks and the sand
In search of a home for Maria and me
I worked late into many an eve

Repeat Chorus
Time passed by as waves on a beach
And Maria my love was still nowhere in reach
Of my loving arms so open and warm
Little did I know of the impending storm
For as I listened to the wind and the call of the sea
The surf and the sky cried softly to me
Of a wreck in the night of a ship homeward bound
And my soul soared screaming up to the clouds

Repeat Chorus
Now I look to the sky on September eves
On the night Maria departed from me
For a seagull of silver I know it to be
The soul of a love and a friend
As a soft breeze moves my hair in the night
My lonely heart soars swiftly in flight
To join my Maria encircling the sky
To touch my love if for only one night

Repeat Chorus
