Island

Written by: Elizabeth Schlicht

a long time ago 
an island far away 
beautiful memories 
that would last a life time  

decades later 
I am dreaming of 
that moment in time

magical, sweet 
time of discovery
of innocence almost lost

gentle whispers in the night 
under a Caribbean full moon

tender, savory kisses shared
teasing glances
bodies touching
hearts lost

beautiful memories
time frozen forever
in my mind

tucked safely in my heart
