Walking in Sand
Walking in sand
I feel you by my side.
Sometimes I fall behind
You wait for me to catch up.
We continue our walk
Collecting sea shells along the way.
You laugh at me;
I want to pick up every shell
There are so many colors
I want them all!
You smile and help me sort through nature's jewels
Because you know how much they mean to me.
We continue our walk;
We laugh at the birds running across the surf.
They run back and forth to the edge of the oceans soft foam.
Occasionally we are hit by a crashing wave;
The cold water submerges our ankles ;
The sand shifts under our feet.
I stumble, but you hold on so I don't fall.
The sun is setting
As fishermen cast there lines into the ocean
Hoping for one last catch.
I have never loved you more as I love you now
Stay with me forever
And walk in the sand.
