Summer Remembering

Summer Remembering

Once upon a time I traveled upon the western coast
With a man who has become my family 
We slept along a river
Speaking about our fears 
As we awed over every star in the sky
While meteors skipped beneath them
We woke to jump into water that made us feel alive 
With giggles and gratitude bubbling to surface 
As fear and sadness sank beneath them.
The beginning of the end, yet it seems no where near here
For this moment, we let it all slip away in the water
For a breath of fresh air
