Structure of Sand

I stand alone,
Unheard an unknown,
Staring through the darkness
Of night.
A child’s sandcastle,
Beautiful and fragile,
Is washed away
Out of sight.
The sand is left smooth
With no sign or proof
Of the structure that once
Stood tall.
It’s sad to think
How that city of strength
Will be forgotten
To all.
I wish to rebuild it,
Reclaim the glory that filled it,
Though I know it wouldn’t
Be the same.
It would be unstable,
Just shaky and frail,
Waiting to be washed
Away again.
