That’s it. Woke me to sit straight up in bed.
A memory we share:
You in a bed of grass with unabashed pride.
I walk there and wait, but noticing me is not on the menu.
A youthful beauty is reflected in your eyes.
Singing, clapping, “Diamond in the back, sunroof top…”
Your scene I’m digging right about now.
I try and try but you’re awake by her side.
Then I realize, this is real, this is it
The sun is shining and I’m down here.
Up is where I belong.
