BURY ME IN THE SAND

Posted on Sep 1, 2013 | 2 comments

The sands of time once gathered round my feet.

Now they blow in drifts and dunes,

sometimes waist deep.

Now that I can no longer kick my way through,

I’ve learned to move a bit slower,

and just make do.

Some day the sand will rush in and cover me.

But, for now I am at least a head above it,

until I become just another buried memory.
