By the Sunlit Water

Remember how happy we were
that day by the pond?
We lay on the dock
and hung our heads over the edge
to watch a school of fish
shining silver in amber water.
Rays of light were cast
around our reflections
like halos of the beaming sun.
I knew you were the one for me

for sharing a lifetime of fun and games
and sadness when it comes.
We held hands for the first time,
for a long time,
and I felt your energy through my palm.
