Summer Days of the Past
July 6, 2016

When I used to walk by the shore
With the cool breeze blowing through my hair
I would reflect on summer days of the past
Thinking back to all those summers gone by
When the true, unconditional love I yearned for
Seemed so far out of reach
When there was no one to hold my hand
Or take strands of my flowing long hair
And gently move it away from my face
When there was no one to embrace me
No one to look deep into my eyes
Sending me into a state of bliss
No one to kiss me with tender love and passion
That would make me melt from head to toe
And fill my heart with never-ending happiness
Now when I walk by the shore
With the cool breeze blowing through my hair
And reflect on the summer days of the past
I realize just how lucky I am
That everything I thought I’d never get to experience
Has now become a part of my existence
Something that I will treasure for life
