Sitting There In The Sand

 

Sitting there in the sand

Toes outstretched on the beach

The lap of the ocean’s wave

Just beyond your reach

And you sit and ponder

All those little life questions

All the things you wondered

Such a long, long time ago

What is it I want

Who do I want to be

What do I want to make of myself

Is this all that I can be

And the memories come flooding back

As you sit there

In the dying embers of the sun

Of all you wanted

All you dreamed

All you were

How do you recapture

All the dreams you left behind

Leaving only shadows

And blurry sketches in your mind

For we cannot walk on water

Cannot portend the future

On what’s happened in the past

Our destiny is not written

In a block of stone

It is as fragile as the shoreline

Being changed with every wave

Only time will give the answers

On the paths that we have made

And just when you think

You’ve reached the end

And all you want to do is sink

You find yourself not so alone

As another shadow joins your own

A hand is slowly twined in yours

Another soul to ask aloud

And search for answers that you seek

Sitting there in the sand

Toes outstretched on the beach

The lap of the ocean’s wave

Just beyond your reach
