I lost myself in the bright lights of the salty waves ,

I wish I could have seen us

every day of that last year,
please don't tell me I was dreaming,
please don't mention you have cancer,
please don't.

But I was dreaming
About you and me,
we walked out by the ocean.
when the sky wasn't necessarily blue,
all I ever wanted was to see us in the moment of clarity,
all I wanted to do was see the color in your face again.

I had a dream last night about you and me,
we were walking on the beach,
when the sky was clearly blue,
and watched the never ending sunset,
but your eyes were still in pain.

I had a dream about you and me,
I was walking out by the ocean,
and your fading face had color,
and your eyes were full of relief...

I never had another dream about you and me,
because, you faded from the beach
and out of my reach.
You were set free
From the on-going twinge.

I was looking at an old photo of my mother and I, at the beach.
