Sand prints

They walked along the shore,
arm in arm, hands entwined.
Pressed in warm, wet sand,
their footprints left behind.
It was their special time together,
on the beach at the end of the day.
Enjoying the beautiful sunset,
watching young children play.
Their heads are close together
as they plan their life ahead,
his arm goes around her shoulder
as they decide it’s now time to wed.
She raises her face upward,
as if to receive a kiss,
a look of joy in her eyes,
as she dreams of wedded bliss.
He pulls her very close to him,
promising to keep her from harm,
to provide a safe haven for her,
where she’d be loved, safe, and warm.
They walk off into that beautiful sunset,
arm in arm, their hands entwined,
as the tide creeps upon the shore,
erasing all those footprints left behind.
Tomorrow they will again return,
their path to trace once more,
leaving more footprints behind
on that sun-drenched gulf shore.

  1. This one is so so beautiful. Can’t tell you how much I loved this. The way described the flow, the circular motion of the poem, everything was so beautiful. 💕

      1. When you just open your eyes and get to see a ‘how are you’ msg from the beach boy himself, how can one be? AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD. 🙃
        I am a happy soul and you made me much more happy. Thank you.

      4. My dear I am in the best of health now. Unfortunately, I have special guests in my home and I can’t blog.
        You didn’t notice I didn’t post today?
        I won’t post again until the end of October.

        I will do my best to read your posts and Ms. Sparkling posts, because I love the way the two of you write.

        Thank you for saying I will be missed. Don’t know if you know my history. I was the only child of two parents who were also only children. So when my parents passed, I was left with no uncles aunts or cousins. No one.

        So when people say I will be missed, well, it means a lot to me.

        My apologies to Ms. Sparkling for using your blog to communicate with Ms Bonne Fille. Jaya take good care.
        If I you don’t hear from me this weekend you will on Tuesday.

      5. I am glad that you are feeling better again. Enjoy the company of your guests. End of October, that’s a long time! But, no problem, Whenever I will miss you, I will read one of your old posts.
        Yes dear, I do remember. You have mentioned being the only child of your parents in one of your old posts. It must be hard sometimes to be all alone. Having siblings just makes your life better in so many ways. But, no worries, you can always count me as your family.

        Take care dear Drew 🙃

But as Jaya said I will go and read back your older posts ♥️ I am happy to know that your health is perfect now and that you are doing well. I wish nothing but the best for you. Thank you for all the love you shown to me. And yes also remember that the sparkling friend of yours will miss you a lot a lot a lot♥️♥️♥️
