Summer Kiss

It started when we were best friends
Innocent, tiny, little things
Dancing in the rain
Climbing up a tree
Playing tag

It started when we were teens
Meeting at the same tree
Laughing at jokes
And finishing homework

It started when I was leaving for college
The tears on our faces
My hand in yours
You held me close
Said we'd always be best friends

It started when we were apart
And all I could think about was you
At that same tree
Dancing in the rain
Playing tag
Laughing
All with me

It started when I came back
And found you at that same tree
Wearing a wrinkle free uniform with brass buttons and cuffs at the sleeve
You picked me up and swung me around
Said you never stopped thinking about me

It started that summer night
At that same tree
The moon watching over us
And the stars wanting to dance
The air just cool enough for you to put your arms around me

It started when you asked to have this dance
And I didn't question the song being only insect noises

It started that night I had with you
Under that same tree
In your arms
Almost asleep

It started
When you finally kissed me
