College Days... and Easy Nights...

College days...Easy Nights....

Yeah, if I think real hard,
they seem to come back to me!
Days of dating with no money.
Times when a Coke/Pepsi
was a special treat...
And smiles were the order
of the day.

Sitting under the tall trees on campus,
or up on the fire escape
and watching the moon shine
on the grounds.
Stealing a kiss
from one another
as other couples silently walked passed.

Our nights were filled
with conversations about everything,
and even our silence
was sublime.
Smiles and sighs were captured
and held,
and I still marvel
at the memory of just your eyes.
A mature innocence...
an easy time,
for each other...
and dreams of our futures
resting just in front of us.

And at the end of the night,
when I watched you walk
through the door of your dorm,
an unmatched warmth
would settle over me.

Those days...
and nights were easy...
and warm.

I wonder what happened
to those two lovers of the night?
I wonder if others
have sat where we sat,
thought the same thoughts,
and if they came out better than we did?

And now...
here we are...
wondering if we are the same two
that were once together
during those nights...
of easy thoughts...
gentle dreams...
and fresh new love?

And just why...
did we forget
some of those dreams?
