Let’s Build A Sandcastle

Let’s build a sandcastle
and play pretend
I’ll be the queen
and you the king

Let’s create another world
special and fulfilling
not dark and bitter
like the one we already have

Let’s build a sandcastle
with high walls and towers
playing with sand in the summer sun
We’ll have a lot of fun

Let’s find an escape
and go on an adventure
We’ll create another story
and decide how it ends
