Beach Umbrella Or Lost Love?

You were my shelter.

You promised to care for me

When I grounded you

By my side.

I expected you to shield me from the

Things that I

Could not shield myself from.

I thought I could rest comfortably as long as

I had you close.

I never would have dreamed that a force could take you

From me like a mere wind.

Without warning you were taken from me

And gone.

I thought I could get you back – Each time I did

I placed you deeper and deeper

To stay by me, but over and over you

Would leap up and leave. . .

As though there were something better.

And I was left alone to fend for myself.
