Sand Dollar Millionaires

With sand dollars in our pockets
we could live without a care;
I would lasso two sea horses;
we would ride them everywhere.
A simple life of freedom
would be yours and mine to share;
living solely for each other
on a silver strand somewhere.

Oh, the heartache men would barter
just to smell the sweet sea air
unencumbered by the burdens
that came upon them unaware.
They would trade a pile of money
For a day without fanfare,
Walking barefoot on white beaches--
just sand dollar millionaires.

    A truly enjoyable poem Faye. So very sorry to hear of the loss of your son. I can't imagine how deeply you still must be grieving. Bless you and I hope poetry acts as a welcome catharsis. Hugs, Connie
