Thoughts from today.
Silent tears fall unbidden from my eyes
As thoughts of you again enter my mind
This is where I come to feel close to you
Do you like the beach? I'm sure that you do.
There's no-one else here, it's just you and me
Is that you playing, in the breeze off the sea?
If I close my eyes, I can feel the sun
Warm on my face- "I love you mum"
As I kneel to write your name in the sand
I remember every detail of your prefect, tiny hand.
On my finger, I still feel the trace of your touch
Bittersweet memories to which I must clutch
I promise, I won't ever forget,
Bertie, my angel, the day that we met.
