It was our last summer together,
But there was no telling that then.
How do you know the last time you will visit somewhere?
How do you know the last day of anything?
The world can change in a minute.
She came into the room wearing only a white t-shirt,
She took it off and placed it on a chair.
Standing in the moonlight,
she let one hand drift through her long hair.
My eyes wandered over her naked body.
Her bare breasts, stomach and below that
The small nest of black hair.
She smiled and looked out the window toward the ocean.
Echoes in my mind
Like bells, pealing from a great tower.
I took her in my arms
And we danced to the sound of the waves.
