Every explosion of the fireworks
Reverberated the ground beneath them,
Overpowering the crash of ocean waves nearby.
Bursts of color that followed concealed the dark night sky,
Outshining the glistening stars with every different hue,
Bringing life to the already beautiful evening.
The colors reflected onto their faces,
The reds and whites and blues in the sky
Shining down on her angelic smile,
Adding color to his sparkling eyes,
And casting the smallest outline
Onto their intertwined hands
As they lay side by side,
Savoring this perfect night,
And dreading the moment their hands must part,
Because this night will come to an end,
As all picture-perfect moments do...
The time of the summer slipped so quickly between their fingers,
Now forcing them to leave this peaceful paradise
With only memories.
Memories of all the walks on the beach,
The talks while watching the picturesque sunset,
The sweet kisses they shared
With only the moon and stars as witness,
Summer was drifting away,
Yet all that mattered was that peaceful last moment together,
And the love that they shared...
