Summer's Song- A poem about embracing values of life

Updated on April 1, 2013

Title: Summer;s Song

As my skin pulled apart

Tar dripped from my veins

Beneath it all; a soiled heart

Laced with a story of my pains

With eyes sewn shut to brace the light

I count my breaths to realize

The air I see, It isn't me

It's my soul; drifting with the butterflies

I watched my shadow drift side to side

It reminded me of childhood

The absence of a solid care

Cause innocence is a bond we share

The thought that was captured morphed to a tear

Caught with the fact that the end was near

But staying strong meant holding still

Counting time by the window sill

Values showed along my sleeve

It was part of being me

Turning my shoulder to darkened times

Taking love when it was there to find

Cause each breath gave another moment with you

And by you I mean those that made the next day worth it all

Cause when it all comes crashing down

I'll take the weight as though it was nothing

Cause the extra time with you

Meant another dream I got to see the end of

And for the time's I miss with you

I'll be the wind at your back; watching

Guiding you along; like a breeze; summer's song

      Thank you very much I appreciate it, I started out writing something dark and turned it into a supportive emotional piece.
