Remember the evening
we turned waimānalo kai ko’o to silk?
How we glided over her skin in perfect unison
How she showed her truest blues
and we were called like children
to bathe in her magic
Remember how the wa’a was moved?
How we were too?
How she pulled all the old melodies out of me
that night I held you close against my chest
& felt the ocean breathing through your skin
These are the moments i recall
anytime i watch the water pull
Anytime our moana’s music dares me to dive deep
I remember your subtle cadence
your breath on the back of my neck
The soft confidence in your voice
The pull and push of your hips
& I do
& I do
& I Always do
