I remember you.

I remember you sitting by a rock pool

Your feet hanging in the water

And your face tilted to the sky.

I remember you smiling up at me

With your brown eyes shining.

And your brown hair shining.

And your brown skin shining.

Almost bronze in the sun.

I remember that summer

When I read you a poem

About the sea and the sky

About being lonely and gray

I remember your sad eyes then.

You held me close and said you'd never leave me.

I remember feeling your smile.

Now I see you walk towards me.

You forgot the rock pool

You forgot the sea and the sky

You forgot the ocean

Maybe you'll forget me.

Now all I have is lonely and gray

And a golden memory of a summer's day

With a crystal sky and a saffron sun

And a simple kiss when the day was done.
