A fortress made of sand

Soon will perish

Together with the tide

Built with love and passion

How can something so beautiful

Vanished too swiftly

In a blink of the eye

If only tears will give you strength

Let heaven pour it’s enormous might

How can I make one moment last

When nature only does her task

Along the shore you stand tall

Undaunted by the ebb and flow of the waves

Through the rise and fall

I will protect your steady walls

I know eternity is not your friend

Therefore, I’ll make no provision

To enjoy such stillness state

Before I lose sight of you

  1. We build skyscrapers and businesses and poems
    and the tides rush up and claim
    the sand castles of our dreams

    i, the crown of creation
    trifling, a mark of punctuation,
    know less than the beasts
    that live and play as they ought.

  2. I think I’m the knight of sand castles. I think my majesty is is washed out to see. I just felt so a washed by your poem! Superb.
