On That Jersey Shore

On That Jersey Shore


Started out like any other day
Woke up with the waves calling
Wanted to just lie there numb
Stay right there drinking them in
Shook myself out of that warm bed
Ran my fingers through my hair
Pulled on yesterday’s clothes
Headed out to do the morning thing

On that Jersey shore under the summer sun
On that Jersey shore thinking how we’d begun

Thinking of that favourite coffee spot
Leaving footprints in the wet sand
Skipping stones in to the wide blue
Those Jersey beach babies in flight
Been up and down this long beach
Looking for a certain tan in tie-dye
Watching for that devilish behind side
Waiting for that flashing that angel smile

On that Jersey shore drifting along with the ocean’s song
On that Jersey shore where we’d met after way to long

Salt wind carries her perfume along
Making her dreamy way this way
Morning sun shining on her sleepy face
Rainbow draping her shoulder to shoulder
Settles herself right where my cup sits
Captured my heart’s desire with those eyes
Sank my will with her breaking smile
Girl stole my last breath with her kiss

On that Jersey shore we became more than friends
On that Jersey shore we found a love that won’t ever end

    Hi Gary,
    Thanks for coming by my blog today! Great to see you! Is this poem about New Jersey? I thought you were in Canada. I’ve been to New Jersey. I have relatives there. Thanks again for dropping by today.

    Enjoyed this very much, thank you. Love the multi-level imagery of woman, landscape, mindset, and mood. She will steal your last breath with her kiss. 🙂
