, ,

I remember
laying in the sand
hand in hand
with our eyes closed
as the waves crashed
into our feet
The moon was full in the night
We stayed in that one spot
for hours afraid to move
because we knew
if we let go
we would
wake up and be in this
century again
But the sun came
up and here I am
in the present
your side of the bed
awaiting…you to make
your appearance…
