Summer Romance

The beauty and romance of the night
Dinner by candle light
He cooked with the stealth of a knight
Caressing her arm as his affection crept all over her
Tonight he would once more tease and rock her

In a way she romanced the past
Reminiscing about summers that went slowly past
Soon he too would be gone, never to last
Her slender hand strokes the gem around her neck
By morning she would once more cradle a trinket on deck
