Do You?

Don't you remember the stars?

That night we laid under them.

Do you remember the sand?

I do.

I remember it between

my toes, in my hair,

and under my nails.

Do you remember the water?

Cool and clear.

Splashing and laughing.

Do you remember the game?

We played it every night.

I'm sorry you don't remember.

I'm sorry you decided to forget.

I'm sorry I'm stuck with these memories

that make me feel lousy.

I'm sorry our friendship ended.

But that summer will be with me

forever.

You may forget me and these memories.

But I won't.

I'm sorry for this.

And I'm sorry for that.

But I'll never be sorry for that

Summer.
