kumiko

i fell in love with a girl from okinawa
she was beautiful and danced on the moon
always had a little ribbon in her hair
wished i didn’t have to leave
back to my home town
far away

i gave my heart to her in okinawa
cool summer nights with morning rain
hands always intertwined
our lingering fears grow
being separated
broken again

if i ever go back to okinawa
will i see her smile and the way she floats
wind gracing her hair
forget my mistakes
take me home
some day
