Shariara's Lament





Lyrics sung by a lonely soul along the shore of a stormy sea…

I lift my eyes to see you
Your smile once shone on me
We danced a while as one heart
Now I dance alone

The dance plays on
and alone I weep
for a promise lost
in fading memories
You sailed away
on a stormy day
And sank beneath the briny sea

I lift my eyes to see you
Your smile once shone on me
We danced a while as one heart
Now I dance alone

So now I wait
for your shade’s return
I stalk this shore
dancing here for you
With your faithful hound
trailing by my side
I embrace the foamy brine alone

I lift my eyes to see you
Your smile once shone on me
We danced a while as one heart
Now I dance alone


I composed the lyrics and the tune. I also provided the vocals and the sound mix. The above drawing is also by me.
