Just Me

There was just me.
Then there was you too.
Sitting in white rockers.
Up high on a dark, chilly balcony.
Watching, gazing, thinking...

Overlooking the night of Sunset Beach.
Staring up under Orion's Belt.
Lights shining through pinholes.
Set deep into the ink black sky.
Imaging, dreaming, growing...

Watching the waves in front of us.
Listening to their thunderous sounds.
We're smoking cigarettes.
Breathing in more than the salty air.
Talking, laughing, crying...

It was just us and our thoughts.
Our words that broke through the ocean air.
Thoughts that came to light.
Feelings that were shared.
Loving, believing, living...

Now they are only memories.
Almost like they were never really there.
A blank space with nothing left to see.
Because now it's only you.
And now it's just me.
