Being Me

Written by: Tucker Carwile Jr


                          Something missed,
                                in my younger days.
                           Kissing in the front seat,
                              at the drive-in movies.
                   
                            Holding hands and watching
                               the sea awash the shore.

                             Feeling the warmth
                                   of your body,
                                 beneath the stars.

                             You have taken my life,
                                bringing it meaning.
                              Filling gaps,
                                 taken from books and movies,
                              that have longed to be filled.

                              Thank you for being
                                      my teacher.
                               for you have taught me
                                     the beauty
                                  of being myself.
