Salt -Poem

What I will remember,

The salt in the air comes

Before eyes find the water

Holding her tiny hand,

As she toddles over lumps of sand

Carrying the stroller across

My back, because the wheels stick

What I will remember is

The sound of their laughter,

The pride in their face when they

Show me what treasures they’ve

Discovered;

Shells, mostly cracked and ordinary

But to the eyes of my children-

Riches to carry home!

What I will remember is

Holding her in my arms

The sunlight in her curls

Lighting her face

What I will remember,

The sounds of the waves crashing

Their delight over foaming water

Covering their toes

I will remember our shadows

Growing long

The night coming when we are

Full of salt and warm from sunshine

The way my soul was lifted

By their love like angels
