Age 16

Do you still remember?
I remember seeing the clearest blue sky that week,
I remember having the biggest smile on my face,
I remember that my heart opened that week,
I remember sitting alongside the beach with you,
I remember being terribly sick that week,
I remember being at ease for the first time,
I remember experiencing what it was like to be all on my own that week,
I remember being silly whilst brushing our teethe,
I remember feeling the breeze from the bluest ocean, 
I remember looking out the balcony with you,
I remember talking about how vivid this was,
I remember calling you from the taxi asking how close you were upon arrival,
I remember telling you about my travel,

I remember all this because,
I remember being 16.
