I’ve always loved Tuesdays

you apologized for the view
saying you just wanted to
show a girl a good time
but don’t you know
that when you traced your fingers
up and down my arm
I watched the sun set
over crashing waves
and with my head on your shoulder
I could feel the crackling fire before us
warming our toes
didn’t you realize
that when you whispered
I love you
and brushed my hair behind my ears
I was already in paradise
