I begin to run, with the clear blue water in sight
I reach out and grab my best friends' hand and interlace
my fingers with Katy's. My legs run with all their might
till the waves carry me away or until my face
is burning because of the salt. I run back onto shore
and turn to see the sun saying its goodbyes for the evening
and the vivid colors dancing in the sky.
I stay there for a while taking in every beam
of sunlight then running back to take one last dip.
I do my favorite thing in the water even though my eyes burn
I turn my body, so I see the sun's rays beaming
like stars twinkling in the night. But I was really yearning
to stay in this moment of peace,
Or that’s what I think, at least.
