Sanibel Evening

And now, as one light leaves to rest,
A gentler one will take its place:
And sweet blue evening comes to call,
A veil across her bashful face.

And soft upon our feet, the sand,
While waves their lullaby do hum;
I close my eyes to feel the breeze,
And hear soft footsteps as you come

Up close to me, and place your head
Upon my shoulder next to me;
Faint music, distant, down the shore,
And one lone bird out on the sea

They sing to us of love and night;
My eyes are open to the sight
Of you, the shore, and everything —
And why you’re every song
I sing
