The promise of tomorrow

We walked together on my beach
and the ripples from those times
still fan out, though the sun set
on her life some years ago.
So many other feet have left
their imprints on this sand
and then been washed away
and yet their shadows linger,
steady and sure as the mountains,
and the sea, and the promise,
as day ends: there will be a tomorrow.
