Salty Hair, Sandy Feet

Salty hair, sandy feet

Listen to your heart beat

Beating with the flow of the waves

Look at the way it misbehaves.

The seashells beautify the shore

They let your worries disappear, they are no more.

Bury your feet on the sand

This simple life, isn’t it grand?

Salty hair and sandy feet

This life is simple but complete.

The Sea Is My Home

I feel at ease and calm

The sea, it helps me becalm.

Time is slower there and all worries are washed away

Sitting on the beach soaking the salty air makes it the best day!

My toes dig deep on the sand

This place couldn’t be more grand.

I take a dip and swim all the stress away

This is quite a nice getaway.

In this square room I suddenly hear

Waves crashing that seems too far away

Light years they are! Light years!
I see the beach, I feel the sand beneath my feet

My mind wanders

While my body remains in this seat.
The mountains call, their cold springs wait

While I am nowhere near them

Alas! This awful fate!
I’d like to leave now

Leave and be free

The sand between your toes
Standing by the edge of the water
Feeling the breeze kiss you softer
The life by the sea
Is calming for me

The Things That Bring Me Joy

Moonlight kisses me on my forehead
Daylight makes me smile
Sand beneath my feet
Waves waving by
Butterflies and flowers, complete my day

Where The Sea Is

The sea is calling
I hear it speaking
Singing sleepless nights

The sea breeze combing my hair
I fly away to paradise

I call out to the sea
Somewhere out there

…..As Many as the Stars

Do not look for what you do not have

for there will be many

But look at what you have ; you’ll see that there’s plenty

Learn to be contented

instead of asking for more

Learn to be thankful and you’ll find happiness

a constellation to explore

Count your blessings and you’ll be surprised

there are as many as the stars in the sky

You’re blessings are as many as the grain of sand

uncountable as your hair strands

Unfathomable and as deep as the ocean

there is just one too many

Whenever you think you have nothing

look up at the stars, feel the sand on your feet

let you hair down and swim the ocean

For that is how much you have

and always…always, count your blessings

Footprints in the Sand

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed
he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of
footprints in the sand: one belonging
to him, and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him,
he looked back at the footprints in the sand.

He noticed that many times along the path of
his life there was only one set of footprints.

 

He also noticed that it happened at the very
lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

“LORD, you said that once I decided to follow
you, you’d walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that during the most
troublesome times in my life,
there is only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why when
I needed you most you would leave me.”

 

The LORD replied:

“My son, my precious child,
I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering,
when you see only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”

A note about the poem’s author: It’s been so long that this poem’s author was written as “unknown” or “anonymous”. Many have claimed this to be their own. Browsing the web, I found this website about Mary Stevenson who claims to have been the author of this wonderful poem. Though I’m not sure if it’s true, I’d like to give her the credit nonetheless as (true or not) she has not been credited enough for composing such wonderful poem. The version I posted is different from that of the website as this is the version I am more familiar with. (Here’s the website if any of you are interested: http://www.footprints-inthe-sand.com/)
