Losing Our Shoes
We sought a safe harbor or simple haven.
We found it in the bistro of the Raven.
We shared our tuna and shrimp tacos,
In the little tavern known as Poe's.
I remember the clamor of the crowd.
I remember my being a little proud,
Basking in your beauty and swimming in your charm.
I remember my heart swelling as you took my arm.
We decided to prolong this magical night.
By taking that walk in the bright moonlight.
We removed our shoes to walk in the sand.
Holding the other’s heart as we held each other’s hand
The light from the old lighthouse was flashing.
The wind was blowing as the waves were crashing.
We were holding each other in the light of the moon,
Cherishing and hoping it wouldn’t end too soon.
We walked, talked, and occasionally kissed.
And on the return trip, our trail we missed.
We were so in love with one another to amuse,
We forgot where we were, and lost our shoes.
