    Sandy coloured shore
    salty water seeps into the ground
    daddy's strong iron hands pounds
    the soft sand
    my tiny hands rolls and molds
    the mud into solid walls
    together we build castles in the sand

    a cool breeze kisses my cheeks
    bucket and spade plays hide and seek
    under a heap of sand

    we build roads that moves uphill
    so high you can see tomorrow's sky
    through mountains big and rivers deep
    seagulls squawk as they quarrel over breadcrumbs left in the middle of the street

    we watch as the water ebb
    the rainbow coloured umbrella sway
    to the rhythm of the wind
    seven waves peeks out of the water
    like clouds formed the day after
    a heavy downpour

    I look at daddy and I smile
    as he picks up one seashell
    holds it gently to my ear
    I hear the ocean's laughter

    we decorate our castle
    with pebbles and pink and white feathers
    we gathered on our walk moments before

    It's not one of those Victorian style castles
    you will find at the end of a magical fairytale
    daddy and I built it from scratch

    right now as the gleaming sun
    opens up its mouth to say hello
    as daddy stretches out his hand to hold mine
    is the only thing that matters not time

    You don't always know what I'm thinking.
    Late yesterday afternoon,
    when the leaves were rustling in the wind,
    thoughts about you, lit up
    like the sudden switch of a lightbulb,
    in a dark room.
    It was my passion for you,
    that caused my thoughts to burn bright.
    and isn't it weird? that of all the bright ideas,
    I could conjure up in my head,
    the most unbearable one,
    is losing you
    I slide my fingers to your side of the bed, suddenly, you are not there, the book, there next to the bed
    then the person you adore steps into the room and asks;
    "Would you like your tea a bit sweeter today?"
    and then, when it comes
    it's just bland tea the wind is carrying.

    So here I sit alone
    Starring at the foggy window
    Below on the third floor
    The door opens then slams
    Still I pretend you're here

    Just a thought....



    If the I the me the ego
    the wrecker of the soul
    would go
    how beautiful this life would be
    if we didn't have to live in duality
    trying to feed the light while fighting
    the darkness inside
    if the busyness of this life
    was not the business we strive
    and we sat here in silence
    no thoughts. Just silence
    what if the sea had no waves
    and the water was calm
    what would I see infront of me

    If I were rain
    my drops would pour down
    and wash
    all your teardrops
    would fall
    And flow into the mountains deep
    And no man
    would feel sorrow
    Nor cry for I
    Am sure
    Only happiness will remain
    Like fresh petrichor
    If I were rain

    When you are alone and blue and lost hope,
    And sitting by the sea, take out this mirror
    And deeply stare, and spare of the time forever
    Your soul had before, and of its relentlessness to cope;

    How many walked past your sad face,
    And greeted you with a smile,
    But this woman walked with you for a while,
    And walked with your sadness with grace;

    And breathing out infront of this raging water,
    Whisper, a little softly, how love walked
    And surfed among the waves caught
    And drowned its smile in between the ocean's laughter.

    My daughter wants to jump into
    the big blue swimming pool
    I know I cannot allow this
    because big swimming pools
    lets you drown
    Olivia does not understand this
    she nags and throws herself on the floor
    like a dog when he wants a pat on his stomach
    when I do not surrender
    she goes and sits under a tree
    with blown up cheeks and a frown
    that could make even the sun run and hide behind the clouds
    I aspire that the universe has my best interests at heart
    like I have for my daughter
    when I truly want something
    and the universe does not give it to me
    I can imagine the universe talking to herself saying,

    Foolish girl. She believes this is good for her, but she does not comprehend how much agony it will bring.

    The rose garden is overflowing
    and I sit
    holding the vase
    is empty as a wallet

    Where are you going now
    Did you take a walk
    on the shore and did you see lots of shells it

    saddens me to know
    that I am not running
    through your mind
    when you write down
    your poems

    Yesterday morning the birds
    flocked to the bird bath and today
    the rain chased them far
    away I'll just say it like it is

    I stay focused on
    the task at hand
    my phone is only an accessory
    Do you know how it feels

    to get pricked by a single rose
    if I buy you a bouquet
    I beg you please
    do not throw them away

    And perhaps I left the door open, so you could walk right through. Like you always do wearing a smile as big as the ocean. With your backpack and your keys in your hand. How was your day you would say. I guess as the day peeked around every corner I did not bother to think what if. I guess I thought it would just be the same as yesterday, well yes they change like the tides of the sea but sitting at my desk covered in notes it never crossed my mind to think, what if. What if, he does not come walking through the door. Then comes the call, "Ma'am, John there was an accident." "He didn't make it." The words strikes me like lightning and then a cloud forms in my sky ready to burst open. It's not true I whisper to myself. It's not true. I think about everything I didn't say yesterday, today, everyday. Silence takes over and then melancholy walks through the door, walks right over and sits next to me on the cold, wet floor.
