These rocks always sitting on my desk
Remind me of those cherished moments……
In Greece, on a rainy day,
when I was little, sitting on her lap,
I was watching the brush gliding over the rocks,
Not only painting a palm, a sea, a dog,
but also carving a picture in my heart.
These rocks, shaped by water, found on the beach,
Painted with love,
Trigger warmth in my heart,
Bring a smile to my face,
And remind me
That our unlikely friendship will be just like
These everlasting rocks–for a lifetime.
