Mariah Williams (November 1,1990 / Alabama)
Just the Two of Us
I remember that day as it were yesterday.
The sunshine was warm, and we began to play.
No trees there were, and no adults at all,
No restraints, no restrictions, just us, and the ball.
I threw it to the left and I threw it to the right,
I threw it with great care, and I threw it with all my might.
I threw it so far, that it floated out to sea,
And there alone we stood without our ball; it was just you and me.
Hand in hand, we ran along the beach,
And free we were, with no adults to preach.
You smiled. I smiled. We smiled together.
That day we pinky swore that we’d be best friends forever.
We laughed, and we giggled, until the sun went to sleep,
Then we made our way home, like lost little sheep.
That day was a wonderful day with you and so full of joy,
and the memories of that day, I’ll always remember and enjoy.
