The Light

Thought I saw something
On your dock last night
Watched across the lake
Slender beam of light

There was a time your light
Guided me through the dark
Led me safely to your dock
Where we ignited the spark

Of forever love we shared
Doing all those things we did
While parents slept in cabins
We laid on the dock and slid

Into the water
Greased by alcohol
Skin pressed together
An eye on landfall

Promises burned between us
Like matching couple tattoos
Consummated at fifteen
Mind-bending colorful hues

Your dad murdered the light
Snuffed my guide to your side
Forty years gone by now
The night my heart died
