Sand Castles

Build your Sand Castles

I see them standing over there with their pockets full of stones

But these demons are intruders here

We have been through this so many times

You and I

Do you remember when you and I first met?

Out on the edge of Everything

You were building a galaxy then

You were the bright center

Shoals of Stars swirled around you

Impossible to escape your gravity

No sounds except for the beating of my heart

Build your Sand Castles

I remember your eyes telling me every story that has ever been told

And I will stand here in my sneakers and My Superman Tshirt, holding my Garbage can lid

I’ll stop them

When I was a paladin of Charlemagne

When I carried the body of Alexander back to His rest

When Isibella sent me to the New World

When I knocked on your door for the first time

I did not falter then

Build your Sand Castles, My Lady

They might approach, But I’m here

My words were written on the Milky Way before we had eyes to read them

They will be there long after I am gone

This is what I was born to do

Build your Sand Castles

And know no Fear
