As we built a castle of sand...

by Eva, age 15, from Dubai

As we built a castle of sand,
And splashed water on each other,
Do you remember the shadow?
The shadow that came up by surprise,
The shadow that took you from me
Many summers later,as I sit on this sand,
And look at the castle that had once been,
I still wonder -why that shadow ever came
To take you with it
And leave me water all over me.
I pray for it to come again,
And take me with it to where you are,
So,we can meet again,
And build a castle of sand
And splash water on one another
Why doesn't the shadow of death come?
And take me with it to where you are
The shadow took you with it
And now it can take me.
I await it everyday,
Sitting on the shores,
I wonder why it takes so much time
Just to take me with it to where you are.
Do you remember how it took you?
Please remind it again
Maybe it doesn't remember how
And can't find it's way.
I'll wait for it anyhow,
And give it time to remember.
I just wish it comes to take me to where you are
So,we can meet again,
And build castles of sand
