Remind me how we danced –
Bare feet or tap shoes,
Midnight or three in the afternoon,
Drinking lemonade or sweet tea,
The smell of rain or fresh-baked cookies,
details we can't remember
Remind me how we laughed –
Secretly or flamboyantly,
Shoulders hunched or heads thrown back,
Shaking silently or shouting happily,
Foreshadowing or reminiscing,
details that don't seem to matter
Remind me how we were in love –
Calmly or passionately,
Cautiously or recklessly,
Saving it or spending it
Hiding it or showing it,
details that all seem the same
It's funny how details fade
Like a Polaroid in the sun
But we can still see the silhouette –
we remember that day that we danced,
That day that we laughed,
And that day that we were
(calmly,
cautiously,
saving and
hiding)
in love.

Beautiful. It's amazing how little the deatails if a moment are remembered or cared about, as long as the feelings felt are remembered. Great writing!
