The gray man walked down the beach,
echoes of laughter of children
played through his mind.

The waves wash away
the tiny footprints in the sand.

At the edge of the shore
shells lie ungathered
and castles go unbuilt.

The sun glows red and dim far on the horizon.

The gray man's footprints
leave less of a mark with every step,
before being washed away forever.    

The gray man looks up and sees
a woman far down the shore.
Someone he might once have loved,
but with the hurt,
can't bear to love once more.

The Moon stares down mockingly at the gray man.
"My party is just starting!" the Moon mocks.
"See the stars join me
as I frolic in the sky,
as you tread upon the Earth,
no companion but the sand."

The gray man looks to the Moon,
watching the party start.
he looks away, he can no longer watch.  

the gray man now runs,
to a destination unknown..
The gray man falls,
feeling the cool embrace
of the damp earth,
he knows he won't be alone anymore...
