realistic text on surface

I am curious if anyone knows a way to make text appear as if it were actually written on sand in a clip...? Shot a wedding video and made a title at the end using after effects, I know it can be better but need some advice. Not an AE pro but do know my way around the program. Here is the wedding video go to the last 5 seconds to see the clip

Looks great. The big thing for me is you need to track the shot so the text moves with the shot. Here is a tutorial you might like as well:

thanks! I did attempt to stabilize but I literally cant get it to work properly. I did warp stabilizer and tried to pick my own track points. I have never been good at tracking so if anyone wants to be a really awesome person and stabilize I would be insanely grateful.

It is so quick I think you could manually track the text and make it work if it doesn't work using the tracking tools. Having the camera movement is good, it makes it feel more complicated.
