DADDY, WHAT’S SAND?
My son asked, “What is sand?” handing me a fist full
How do I answer my boy?... Knowing he was looking
for a deeper answer than I could give.
I guess it could be my grainy disposition, ruff and course
or I guess it could be covering to make the sea jealous.
It just might be a playful place kids and cats hang out.
Or perhaps it’s a reflection of the number of stars above
Maybe sand is the image of a child that can be molded
by his mother and father who refines its behavior
Maybe it’s something to test us when it gets in our underwear
blown by nature’s whimsical personality created by God
Could it be an illusion of something more, the sands of time
that fills the hour glass of our lives?
It could be a count of each one of us, you and me
Grains of sand waiting for a storm
And now it seems to me to be something beautiful
that knows how to come and go no matter the storm
No matter the beliefs, there are countless points of view
With so many grains of sand it shows that we aren’t alone
There is life and death, and it does not wait
Life and death comes and goes as sand in the wind
I perceive there is more to the question than meets the eye.
As we pass from life to death, sand castles are washed away.
