Beach Girl


Empty Heart


Powdery and white dry grains
Softly sifted through my hands

Flinging sand up in the air
Whirling winds blew all away

I raised and gazed out to sea
And heard a distant whisper

I waded out into the surf
Stood curious and waiting

Cross miles and miles of endless sea
I heard you call my name

You strode into my empty heart
And found that it was vacant

Your laughter filled up every room
Left smiles in every corner

One day I hope to touch your face
And look into your eyes

Until that time, I'll only dream
Of emerald isles and you

The solitary child.
