Weekend Writing Prompt #80 – Castle

Over to Sammi for our word challenge today
I built my castle in the sand,
You were there to hold my hand,
Helped me stack the turrets high,
The tide came in and made me cry.
In later years you shared my dreams,
Nothing was ever as it seemed:
Plans forthcoming, a fortune spent,
We wondered where our childhood went.
Parted company, went different ways
Never once forgot those days
The youth and innocence we shared,
Remembering how much we cared.
Times long gone, my eyes still see
How things were, not yet to be:
My castles today are in the sky,
With you standing by my side.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    How fortunate we are to have known such a love. How much sweeter it becomes with age.
