Waves crash quietly onto the shore,
Birds call to each other in the distance.
Pale sand tickles their toes,
A mother and her daughter.

Water kisses their skin
As the breeze wisps through their hair.
The same shade, same strawberry blonde,
A mother and her daughter.

Who would have known?
A girl, only eighteen years old,
To a young child so much affection shown,
A mother and her daughter.

A sweet and delicate reminder of what's important in life.
