Sands Take Me Back (poem)

Updated on September 21, 2013

Settling sands take me back take me back

Across the winds calling calling

-

Stardust adrift

Over soft passages

Of must be a dream

-

But wait

Here are the flowers

The blossoms of the unreal

Still scenting the heartbeats

Which had touched that ever never

Did it really happen

-

Sparkling sands it is me it is me

Patently listening listening

-

As moments return

Living in the pages

Of some fantasy

-

A kiss

Still bears the feelings

Which etched the meadows

Of lovers’ imaginations

Strolling bridge surreal so true

Does it matter after all

-

Close your eyes I’m waiting waiting

Wishes set on fire

A forest returned from their ashes

-

Can’t you see tears falling falling

Sprinkled with Joy and sorrow

The flavors of the seasons

-

Here I am here I am treasured time

Your seas of sands were blessings blessings

-

Each precious grain

Staged splendors

Slipping somewhere far away

-

But wait

      So long ago that it almost seems like a dream and yet it remains as fresh as if it were yesterday. Beautifully written.

      Shifting sands of time.

      Was it real?

      It does seem like a lifetime ago.

      We can all identify with this one.

      Beautiful job, Martin.
