The waves lap against the shore,
A steady beat of a marching drum.
His fingers tap the beat on my arm,
Moving the rhythm of the music.
Tonight, we lean against each other,
Lost in the moon and the sounds of the sea.
A gentle sweet melody,
Drifting us away to a place of sweet harmony.
I can feel the tide tickling my toes,
Happy in this moment
But unsure of what he's thinking.
Does he feel the way my heart is beating?
Can he hear the thoughts that are deep inside my head?
I wish there was a way to tell him how I feel,
A secret connection,
Hidden between him and I.
Soon the tide will cover the shore,
Cleaning the sand and washing the beach.
It will wipe away every trace of us,
Every proof that we were even there.
Long after the moon sets,
After the waves have swallowed everything we left behind,
I will remember this magical night,
Just you and me, under the stars,
