Leaving Summer

Season I Love

Leaving Summer

Summer is almost over

Over too soon

not enough warm days left

I hate goodbyes

When I was a child

summers were long and lazy

school was out

play all day til

the streetlights came on

time to go home

but more summer play

the next day

now I am older

I laze outside

with glass of wine

in hand

trying to make each

day last

longer

never enough time

when you are

older

goes too quickly

wish it would last

I still love

summer

don't go yet not yet

stay please

oh well there is Autumn

I love Autumn.

Fifty something single female who has had the desire to write since a young child. I like to express thoughts in my journal as there always seems to be something going on in my brain! Looking forward to starting this new journey with words.
