Every grain of sand

~ For every grain of sand the ocean shoreline comes to move To count them all a task so very long Fill your hand with grains that come in time to you to prove The softness is a feeling ever strong Endless possibilities now sprinkled in the wind Dancing to the magic that we feel Shiny little glistenings about the ground begin Each and every footstep is so real As we walk along our feet they know where we have been Only do our hearts know where we go Just to have these moments in our life now once again And the knowledge that I love you so Somewhere there’s a number written down in someone’s dreams Noting every grain of sand we see Staggering the digits as I hope the number means Every day that you are here with me ~

Our feet "know where we've been," but our hearts "know where we go." Poignant and compelling poetry, Chris. And counting the number of grains of sand in a person's dreams seems so apt for finding the love we all hope for. Nicely done, my friend! Hugs, Carolyn
