Sandbox Love

She was my sandbox love,
When we were just kids
The one I dared to eat dirt
My hero, when she did
My enemy, when she said
Your turn now and I double dog dare
You eat some dirt 
And that dead worm over there

She wore pink tennis shoes,
And her hair in pigtails
We were dreamers with wings
living life on a dare
My sandbox love and I
Testing our limits, 
Running wild and free

Little girls  play dress up,
Boys just destroy things
She’d say,  I am  Princess,
 You are a Prince
I  had a smile on my face
Thinking of  my sweet revenge
The next day I’ll be a firey dragon,
 she’ll be a witch, that I’ll eat end

There in the sandbox, we gave our spit pledges 
Promising each other, our love would last forever
Her family moved away and I’d not seen her since
But I honor my pledge each day I reminisce
My sandbox love,   you -  I’ll never forget
