A Time in the Sand
There was a time once, by the sea
That you sat side by side, right next to me
You made it safe, to think and speak
My mind so brave, my heart so meek.
We drew with fingers, in the sand,
At the edge, where sea meets land
Then came a wave, I did not see
It washed you clear, away from me.
How cliche, a moment in time
To try express, in tired rhyme
But one belief, I do hold true
Even long before, I knew of you
Some things.... some people... are pre-designed
Bypassing walls, put in place by mind
Be it logical, probable, or understood
Some things, some people... just simply 'SHOULD'.
So do I, small of stature and big of fear
Dash into that sea, full of danger, dark, unclear
To find you, grab you, and bring you 'home'
Or do I stay here ... on the sand... once more .... alone.
