To walk along the longest pier
In the world ! Wow one and half miles
Does give us sunny smiles!
Is so beautiful to do
And what a view!
If the water is still
The sun makes it glisten
Sometimes it’s peaceful, silence
And then the seagulls
There they circle
Flying high or sitting on the bar!
There is nothing like it
To walk out on the water so far
Be upon the waves
Like Jesus walking on the water..
Have you thought of that?
The simili …
Gives you stillness
Of our world, the earth, the sea
I’ve walked this pier since I was a child
Holding my fathers hand dear
Without a fear
And tasting the candy floss the icecream
The penny arcades, the aquarium… memories …
It’s now just like a dream…
Times travelled so far
And here we are
Now my guide dog Polly walks down with me
Cos you know, I can’t see…
My way so easily these days..
The wonderful feeling
Of the water beneath my feet, not getting wet
Is to be held in awesome respect
For this great pier
Of the Victorian era
Will never give way
And I will always see the feeling
Of its awe so great
Perhaps taken for granted I feel
So perhaps you should steal
A moment to walk out there today
In the weather, come what may
And feel the presence of it
Be forever in the hearts of us who know it
It will be there … so walk out on the water with grace my dear friends …
