MEMORIES AT THE BEACH

I’d watched her,

As she sat in the shade.

The shadows were like a cure

For that sunburned maid.

 

I’d watched her,

As she went to the beach

Her smile like the lure

Of a summer ripe peach.

 

I’d watched her,

And she’d giggled at my jokes.

We’d drive to Big Sur

Just to get away from our folks.

 

I’d watched her,

Sleeping like an angel.

Her hair felt soft and pure

Yet her skin had turned glacial.

 

And I’d watched her,

As she was lowered in the ground.

I had been so sure

That she’d always be around.
