We sat in the warm beach sand
Basking in the sun
I sat between your legs
My back pressed against your chest

Your fingers caressed my leg lovingly
And you spoke softly in my ear
I turn to look you in the eyes
As you whisper adoringly, words of love

Our eyes meet in heady passion
And your hand goes to my neck
Bringing me in for a breathtaking kiss
That leaves my toes curling in the sand

We end the kiss with a small laugh
And you smile, dimples gracing your cheeks
I run my hand through your hair
Loving the way you lean into my touch

Your arms wrap around my body
And we stare into the ocean blue
My head rests on your chest
And I listen to your heartbeat

It quickens as my nails trail up your arm
Tracing the thick contours of your muscles
You tangle your fingers in my hair
Massaging my scalp lightly

Soon we are laying
Chest to chest
Kissing passionately
Hands roaming

As the sun sets in the sky above
You take me higher than ever before
Showing me the true meaning of love
What real pleasure is

And the waves crash around our naked forms
Caressing our flesh as we move together
Taking each other to new places
Rejoicing in each other’s existence

We call out with pure ecstasy
Your name leaving my lips
Then you lay me on your chest
Fingers tracing my spine

In the morning I wake
To your soft honey scent
Remembering that moment in time
That we shared on that beach

Your eyes open to look at mine
And you bring your hand up
Tracing my jaw tenderly
Before whispering “I love you”
