Song Lyric Saturday – Love Letters in the Sand

So the Word of the Day is Sand and I couldn’t help but think of this golden oldie song – Love letters in the Sand.

On a day like today
We passed the time away
Writing love letters in the sand
How you laughed when I cried
Each time I saw the tide
Take our love letters from the sand
You made a vow that you would ever be true
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you
Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand
Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand
I would love to write some lyrics as lovely as this. The song was written by Nick Kenny, J. Fred Coots and Charles Kenny, and made famous by Pat Boone.

Call, me a total Maniac but I decided to try to sing it myself:


The Diary of Life – a Very Short Story

 

I thought life was mapped out. 

School, then Job, Then Marriage, Then Retirement, Then Finale.

I was wrong.

Schooling never ends, There is always more to learn.

Jobs are not guaranteed and neither is marriage. Some people go through their life and never find the right job, or the right person. 

The only thing for certain is the Finale.

The rest is like a blank sketch book.

You fill it in as you go.

As best you can.

I wish you a pen with lots of ink, that never lets you down.

I wish you a page filled with the brightest colours.

A book well written.

A book that is a joy to read and to write, with lots of scribbles in the margins. Words packing every page. 

Whether a short story or a full novel, I hope it’s a best seller.
