Passing years, passing years, we build you in
dreams –
Passion and hopes, trust so it seems.
White breakers come, long talks in the night,
As we build desperately, yet losing the fight.

The sea takes it all, and we leave one by one,
Goodbye, my friend, in seaside sun.

Sandcastle
She is still my friend, really.

I had hoped to deepen our
friendship, but she did not wish
that depth.  To her, our friendship
was deep enough.

We had several conversations.

She was honest.  So was I.

I wept very hard that night, alone,
26 July 2007.

It was hard to let a dream go.

Sandcastle

Sandcastle, sandcastle, we build
you in dabs –
Turrets and moats, and pink
soldier crabs.
White breakers come, we scream
with delight,
As we build desperately, yet losing
the fight.

The sea takes it all, and we leave
one by one,
Goodbye, my friend, in seaside
sun.
