I can never forget the summer night that
turned into morning with no help from us.
We talked about waiting
but barely knew the word.
And I always thought I could teach you things,
but you were chasing sunsets and pyramids,
islands and adventure.
My words were never the hammock
where you’d nap on lazy days.
I became a moon, orbiting you,
and you became the boy
who never looked at the sky.
