New Year's Day After Lunch

Updated: Jan 16, 2021

We walked today along the beach

Beside a cold and graying sea,

And pressed our little footsteps each

Into the sand. You said to me

I don't remember what, because

It didn't matter. Just that we

Had both been thinking of what was

And speaking what we hoped would be.

A tiny dog had gone before

And put his feet into the shore.

I cried, thinking of friendships without speech

Today as we were walking on the beach.
