Do you remember that summer?
Together in Corsica
We drove the winding roads
Through the coral sunbeat mountains
To the coast of Cargèse.
I’ll never forget the beach
Where we laughed together for hours
On that peaceful afternoon.
We were the only ones
You, me, mam and pap
And oh how we laughed at her – a mummy
Wrapped like that, in her cream pashmina
Hiding from grains that danced with the wind
And at him
For, well… just being him
In those shorts and with that hat
Do you remember?
Running on the warm sand with me
To where the little boats lay tired and thirsty
We sat on their edge
Drawing stars in the sand with our toes
And we left them there
As a thank you note for the night sky
For always being there to wish upon
So when I need to, I go back there
Back to Corsica
Between the mountains and the sea
Dancing on those little boats
Where all that mattered was just to be
