This moment feels right.
I can hear the crash of ever-gushing waves
rushing to the ends of the shore and back.
I remember falling in love as the sun set behind us.
It spread over your heart and calmed an uneasy spirit
and I imprinted that moment in my mind.
I can smell the Northern Great Lakes
rising freshwater from bottoms deep
flowing faster than daydreams that carry altered meaning.
I remember catching a darker tan where the sun misled my skin,
melting my heart
as I let it reach deeper in.
I can feel the warmth in our embrace
and I know you care.
I remember reaching for your hand
as we watched the sun resist the moons dares.
My heart was full and when I turned to look at you
a beautiful face looked back, reflecting all the skies hues.
We lived in that moment and loved wildly,
