Tory

i sit here and think of you

as the first stars begin to

twinkle in the sunset background

looking out across the bay

looking but not seeing

watching the lights dance across the water

i sit here and think of you

as the days pass

no matter what class

all i can do is

sit here and think of you

remembering our times together

at the track, watching you race

later stealing your hat and laughing as you gave chase

at your grandma's, painting her new porch

and each other

and at your dad's, the one night you skipped the races

to stay home and help me babysit your brothers

watching t.v. playing games with the boys,

talking,laughing, flirting, just you and me

now you're there

and i'm here

our feelings are out in the open

bridging the space

between us

as i sit here and think of you
