I imagine you in my world

as I move through it

Yesterday at the beach

I visited the same tidepools

I knew as a child

And imagined your eyes

Wide with amazement

At the little crabs and periwinkles

Each creature of the sea

I can hear you squeal with delight

At the waves as they approach

Little white ripples

Over your little pink toes

This is my favourite place

I have been waiting to share it

With only you.
