Shifting Sand

Looking out
beyond the reef
beyond the minds
toward the horizon
play sweet
harmonious lullabies
of days gone by
and the best
are yet to come
out there
tides will rise
shifting sand
carry footprints
out to sea
a gentle reminder
that we are
merely mortal
after all
end of the day
nothing will
remain the same
eyes close
drift away
to a place
now and then
the future
holds a bright light
leading the way
gentler times
left behind
cherish the moments
of promise and forever
permeating the senses
