A Lovers Summer
As summer vanished, along with you
by B.J. Ayers
I walked the path, we once shared,
Chasing dreams from years gone by,
Yet knowing now, they were just too few.
I reached the cabin and sat on the porch,
Wings spread wide, like birds we flew,
You went east and I flew west,
Together knowing, we could not go forth,
The Hedges swayed lightly
From a cool northern breeze,
We both parted, like the summer season,
Like leaves from the trees, yet so intently
As the sun set, such a beautiful sight,
Just like the day, when we first met,
A picture so vivid, I shall never forget,
Yet, together we chose loneliness, beginning tonight.
A season called summer, The fun time of the year,
Yet, the heart is heavy and filled with pain,
One to forget, but shall we ever,
My heart fills with you, my sweet dear.
