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


was about her.

expressive eyes.


I remember wanting

all of my words

to move her,

let her decide

if I was worth her


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


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.
