Island Elope

will you run away with me?
far away, just… far away
away from this, from where we are
let’s not wait, let’s go today

no screens or phones, no internet
no buildings, roads and cars
just you and me, the sun and moon
an island under quiet stars

we’ll walk the beaches all day long
and walk and walk some more
we’ll be together until the day
faded has what was before

and when the day comes
to say goodbye, to see a last sunset
we’ll gladly tell each other this:
this was our best day yet
