I Remember

The first time

she giggled and I blushed

 

I remember the heat on the

back of my neck

when I realized

she could see my

excitement

was about her.

expressive eyes.

 

I remember wanting

all of my words

to move her,

let her decide

if I was worth her

attention

or a passing fantasy.

 

We would walk in woods

together in hand

imagining only the

real where we stood

in wonder.

 

I remember glancing

at moons

where by then

she brought me in her backyard

with the sounds in a nighttime sky

outside her

bedroom window.

 

There have been

now

those moments

when s full moon

will let me feel her

by my side.

 

I remember wishing every memory

I have with her remain only our own.
