Small boy on the beach

Small boy on the beach

Throwing pebbles in the air

Can you see the circles spreading

Have they caught you unaware?

Small boy on the beach

Chasing waves that turn and fall

Can you hear that distant murmur

Of that far off echoed call?

Small boy on the beach

Making castles in the sand

Can you feel the warm winds blowing

Like a father’s firm, strong hand?

Small boy on the beach

Walking tightrope on the groyne

Can you see my memory’s picture

As with the past, the present joins?

    I really like your post. The sentiment behind it is portrayed nicely. 🙂
    GOOD JOB 🙂

    I’d really appreciate if you could tell me how you feel about –

    It’s a picture of a child. I need more and more people to tell me how they feel about it

    Thanks Akriti. Much appreciated.

    I’ve added this comment to your post…Somehow the ‘like button’ seems so wholly inappropriate to this heart-rending image. But there’s also a hidden beauty here. Personally I’m convinced that God doesn’t allow innocents to suffer in heaven so those tragic last words will have found a gentle listening ear and that precious little soul will now forever rest in peace. Who knows, there may just be another little angel now, sent out to silently watch over others in similar plight.

    Thanks for letting me know about this. War is wrong on every level and the more people that wake up to this truth, the more hope we have of stopping things like this tragedy from happening.
