My Favourite Firecracker

Here's to my favourite firecracker
Fuse too short and fire too bright
You exploded before we were ready
Left us running for cover
Instead of looking up
Eyes wide and mouths open
In breathless awe of your beauty

Here's to my favourite shipwreck
Cracked timber and sunken treasures
Every sailor leaning in to the siren song
Blind to the rocks
To the waves and the shore
Eyes closed and lips curled
Singing together as the waters rose

Here's to my favourite slow dance
An oceanic rock from side to side
With no care of the sounds from the radio
Moving to our own rhythm
The one that we made together
Eyes soft and lips brushing
Wishing the song would play all night
