A Tale Written In The Sand (poem)

The day I took my lover by the hand

And felt my future there within her eyes

A tale forever written in the sand


A dream beyond what stardust could have planned

The blossoming of splendor and surprise

The day I took my lover by the hand


And for our time the world we could command

We mingled mid the wishes in the skies

A tale forever written in the sand


Within our hearts was fashioned wonderland

Enjoying waves which stroked this paradise

The day I took my lover by the hand


Then struck dark ways so hard to understand

To tear a love with rains of vicious guise

A tale forever written in the sand


In dust from blight is heard a distant band

The reason that an angel softly cries

The day I took my lover by the hand

A tale forever written in the sand

You never disappoint with your words of romance.

Were you always tuned into your emotions of love?

Or, did you find these emotions after losing your Joy?

You are a master at your craft, and I thank you for sharing

these exquisite pieces with us.

With young love, only comes visions of the perfect. When reality sets in, it can be quite another thing. Well written, and naturally leaves much to the imagination.
