A teenage camping trip on Beausoleil Island, out in Georgian Bay


On Beausoleil

In the muddled years of my early teens
Immature and insecure and sometimes mean
We went camping out
All bravado mixed with doubt

I saw you with your friends out by the rocks
You were sitting near the crumbling wooden docks
A radio was on
You and your friends all sang along

Miles from where we had always run, the city, the noise, the cars
We all spent our nights by the fireside singing to the stars
While summer gently rolled away
With the lazy surf of Georgian Bay
On Beausoleil

One day you gave me your picture with a kiss
And we shared a secret adolescent wish
That we’d remember it
Times we never would forget

And I know what I will say should we ever meet again
Thank you for all the kindness that you showed me way back then
