Sonnet 2

Swimming

I swam out on a summer night
to test the water and my strength.
And I was lost, without a light,
so I swam the shore’s entire length,
and I was tired at the end,
but I knew you were waiting there.
I swam to you, my dearest friend,
so you could kiss my moonlit hair.
And though you left me long ago
for other women, men, and lands,
I sometimes smile, just to know
we left our clothes on midnight sands.
I should have known it wouldn’t last,
but still, I’m dreaming of the past.
