Sunset on the Coast

March 31, 2008
By Ashley Crosby, Cary, NC

The sands of time slide through my fingers
Just like the way your hair used to
So many years ago
I remember those days

When your smile gave more warmth than the sun
And your laugh was wilder than the cry of the gulls
Everything about you as perfect as
The curve of this shell in my palm

But the passing days carried you away
Like the tide of the ocean
And now all I’ve got is your footprints beside me

As the sands of time slip through my fingers
