I caught you in a time of joy
As you once found a wave
And rode it for it’s very worth
Upon this warm, clear day.
My camera is my surfboard now
It seeks out waves of joy
Like those that have surrounded you
On this day in July.
Still know your time is near an end
The beach will soon be dark.
But I will always have this scene
Imprinted on my heart.
A moment when the sun did shine
A twilight vast and free
A dream I once did ride the waves
A silly old diary.
