The smell of the ocean water infused my nose and body with a sweet serenity,
the moon gleamed bright and my eyes gleamed free.
The red,white, and blue flag flew high upon the hill,
and the people ran wild with energy and love.
The brisk summer night brought a smile to the crowds face,
as the tide crashed and fell,
the fire burned and the sweet summer air melted throughout the sand.
While everyone gathered around the bright, steady-glowing campfire,
I was overjoyed to find myself walking toward the water for one last gentle, salty goodbye kiss.
