My feet sinking into the sand.
The water lapping at my toes
The fierce waves crashing against the rocks.
The sound of children’s laughter floats all around me.
The spray of the ocean on my face.
The taste of salt on my lips.
The cool breeze whips through my hair.
The magnificent sun is starting to hide and it seems that the sky is alight with every color imaginable.
Everyone is leaving, but I stay to watch.
And as I stand there alone.
I think back to a time long forgotten.
To a time when I was a carefree child and the worries of the world had not yet hit me.
As I remembered a smiled played about my lips.
And as I watched summers end,
I realized something.
That although my carefree childhood days are over…
Life itself has only just begun.
