my sand dunes

The Moon Remembers

I wonder if the moon yet remembers
that star filled night upon the sand
nervous giggles, respiration elevated 
then with a smile you took my hand

The sand dunes kept their silent vigil
over our deserted stretch of beach
we shared our farewell to innocence 
heaven was close enough to reach

All these years later holding you near
your eyes radiant in the evening light
yes the moon and I both remember 
basking in your love we beam tonight
