Not Drowning, But Waving

You’re in the ocean water and you call my name from several feet away

You’re having fun and don’t need saving

How absolutely delighted I am you will likely not die today

And you are not drowning, but waving


I’m sitting in a beach chair drinking gas-station wine we bought on the way

We’re at the beach and I’m a bit drunk

It’s a grand ol’ day – you could say it was gay

I’m in a Speedo, while you’re in your trunks


We are spending our vacation time together and having fun

Playing at the beach, eating out – with a bit of misbehaving

How wonderful it is you did not perish today beneath the summer sun

And you were not drowning, but waving
