see title

It was raining on that day I saw you 

standing on the Santa Monica Pier 

looking dejected leaning on the rail. 


You stared down at the empty beach and blue 

water as if searching for yourself in a mirror. 

It was raining on that day I saw you. 


But there was nothing that anyone could do 

to save you on that cold morning; no seer 

could have foreseen you leaning on the rail. 


Like me, I knew, life's struggle had got to 

you; there was, I guess, no will left to peer 

through the mist of pain that day I saw you 


into some brighter future; it's I who 

regret not stopping to comfort you, dear, 

looking dejected leaning on the rail. 


In the newspaper I read about you, 

how they found you floating under the pier. 

I'll never forget that day I saw you 

looking dejected leaning on the rail.
