Laying on the beach

The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds on this plain.
It is so bright and beautiful it is hard for my eyes to contain.
I lean against the wind and pretend that I am weightless.
In this moment I know I am set for life, set for greatness.

I lay my head onto the sand and to my dreams I submit.
The sky resembles a black lit canopy with holes in it.
Counting the stars above one by one, I am euphoric.
This is one night I'll remember forever, to my its historic.

I watch the fireflies come out all along the beach.
Burning off and on, they stay just outside my reach.
Staring out into nothing, I look back on life and reflect.
This sliver of time is so great, but its you who I recollect. 

No matter how great life can be, its you I want here.
I wish you could be next to me, but then you disappear.
It feels like everything I do in life, it just isn't complete.
Now the best days of my life are more bittersweet.
