First grown up vacation, meet your Summer Love.

Summer love, when on vacation,

Nothing can be sweeter,

The August moon.. your only light.

Seagulls all have taken flight.

There you are , just you and her.

Your brand new Summer love.


Convinced that this is so much more,

You walk and talk along the shore,

Declaring to her, all your Summer love..

Youth and beauty go hand in hand,

No one can deny it.

But Summer love can sometimes hurt,

Be careful........ sure it´s more than a flirt.

For Summer love can come to nought,

If one of you is merely flirting,

The other one will soon be hurting.


Take good care when the August moon,

is surrounded by a thousand stars,

The ocean lapping at your feet,

Is such a wondrous sound.

Peacefullness, and beauty., Excitement in your hearts,

All these things will turn your head,

Till spinning in a dream you are.


Enjoying every second of the ´Now´time you´re with her,

Your first true Summer love.

When young and beautiful you are,

And love comes knocking at your heart.

Nothing can compare.

Your life´s about to start.....


Or so it seems when you´re in love and starry nights are with you,

It certainly is a beautiful thing, and it may last forever.

But guarantees don´t come with romance. Be careful with your girl.

Your youth is not just time to fall in love, but also to have fun.,

Enjoy the energy of the day.... when two can feel as one.

Running, splashing in the waves, All part of Summer fun.


A day of sun upon your skin, allowing her to rub lotion in.,

Then you return the compliment, massaging both her shoulders.

It´s time for love´s enjoyment, before life throws you boulders,

You need not think of such things yet, Enjoy your great vacation.

But no one wants a Summer love to end in tears of damnation.


To you, she is the prettiest girl,

Sweetest in the world.

She seems to be inside your head,

making all things turn and swirl.,

And so it should be when we love.

We are made this way.

To find a soul mate now

and look forward to the day,

When you are sure you´ve met her,

The only girl for you.

You never will forget her.

To only her be true.


What could be more natural?, than to find the one you´ll love,

The one you´ll love forever, Not just a Summer love..

Though you must be careful . Don´t hurt your lovely girl,

Be honest with yourself, and look deep inside your heart,

Life is meant for living, of that there is no doubt.

But if you feel your Summer love, at home would not work out,

Don´t be afraid to say it! Let your message be understood.

There´s nothing wrong with vacation love

As long as both of you feel good.

Better to enjoy every starlit night

Better to be laughing when the day is light.

Better than pretending, if she is not THE one.


Crazy Summer nights, bonfires on the beach, and dancing

Glorious Summer days, with games, and swimming and romancing.

Oh! Romancing. What it does, to your fast beating heart,

The same for her , you may think but for girls, it´s stomachs too.

Stomachs filled with butterflies, flying round and around,

can almost make her sick....? Sick with the excitement of being close to you.

To touch your hand and feel its grasp, strong and masculine.

Treat her gently, your first love,

You´ll get blessings from above,

For gentleness is always blessed.

In one way or another.

Beautiful Summer nights. Your friend, the moon is bright again,

Somehow you now feel nervous,. It´s normal. !

She seems so delicate and pure,

You want to hold her close and tight,

but you fear she´ll break... You are not sure...


Before you know it, the moon has gone..

The stars have disappeared..

You can´t believe the night is leaving,

Sun will soon be rising, and you are both still feeling

As you did the night before.

No need to be surprised, that time has run away,

Your falling in love with your sweet girl, and now you have the day.

Do as you please, it´s your vacation, and you have met your girl.

A lazy day or get some sleep, or splash and swim in the ocean.

As long as you´re together , you kiss and swear ´forever´.


It may be so. It sometimes happens.

That first love can be your last.

You may have many years ahead.

In love at once, so fast.


Only you and your sweet girl can know how deep your feelings go.

With time , through long , hot Summer days,

You gradually will come to know.........

And even if the answer is a parting... next is college.

You´ll never forget this Summer love.

The memories will stay in your heart.

You´ll always have the memories of feeling ten feet tall!!

Arms around your sweetheart, in the Summer when she was ALL.


The goal of this verse was to explore the amazing rush of feelings when we are young and think we´ve met our soul mate.

Sometimes a vacation can make everything seem perfect, there needs to be no thought for tomorrow. September always looks to be a very long way off. College or school are a distant haze, and the only reality is there on the beach or under the moon and stars.

Campfires, music food and drink are an exciting part of young ones on vacations.

Many really do fall in love for the very first time and the love grows and lasts. The young ones often marry, but this is not always the case.

l don´t expect teenagers to take advice any more than l did, but if they could see the importance of looking deep inside themselves they will know whether they are enjoying a short lived love affair or if they have truly met their soul mate.

As humans our biggest problem is that we listen to our heart even when we know it is telling us lies. Our hearts can be treacherous..... yet according to William Shakespeare...Ít is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.

He could be right.

Yes this is true Dim we always want our love to last, and especially young love for when it's our first tug on our heart strings we don't have the slightest clue how painful the hurt is when those strings break.

Beautiful poem.

jenubouka said it perfectly about your poem Dim. Feel the same way here. The poem also brought up the memory of a long ago beach situation that wasn't fated to last. Yea, the boys of summer...have you ever seen the movie 'Summer of 42' Dim?
