circle of stones 1

Stones in the Sand

Do you remember the summer
When your smile burnt on my shore
And your laughter filled my sky
Searched my soul for the firewood
But could not find any more
I held you close there on the sand
As you kindled the flames with your hands

The wind will blow the ashes
Where once there was a flame
Still it’s you that I will think of
When I hear your name
We’ll forget the blazing fire
And it’s burning pain
But the stones set in the sand remain

We talked deep into the night
Before the warmth faded away
And your spirit took to flight
Though the coals were still smoldering
You knew that I could not stay
But I held you close there on the sand
As you kindled the flames with your hands
