A Tale Written In The Sand (poem)

Updated on September 13, 2013

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

      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.
