From cliff to Cliff Beach

The road goes ever on and on
with only the sky up above
darkness is falling
obscuring the other ways ahead

Although beauty was the day's work
Life's beauty was lost from sight
For what reasons
We may never know

Memories throng the mind
appearing to offer
a way to the light
the gate is yet closed

The last words were spoken
The beach smiles from afar
It beckons towards life
but darkness prevails

The gate is now open
The rocks come to an end
No other road now offers itself
One step

Torsten Kulke, aged 48, went missing near Aird Uig, Isle of Lewis, on July 28th. A body, thought to be his, was found washed up on nearby Cliff Beach on August 12th. May he rest in peace.
