Summer’s Air (poem)

Updated on November 25, 2013

What moments passed into the summer’s air

Each breath of life filled splendors we would share

Each dream we danced to one more hope would bear

Each kiss of memories was born right there


The heartbeats made would last throughout the year

Each gentle scent which flowers sent was dear

Each star which warmed a lover’s night was clear

Each day made extra time to hold you near


And so we formed the magic of our air

Which every spark of romance held so dear

Was ever there a purpose quite so clear

As whispered wishes born when we were there


Our summer’s flare would last from year to year

So endless Joyful waters which we share

Who knew the coming pain which I would bear

That morning when I could not hold you near


A season came with you no longer there

An end to this was all which I could bear

There rose a breeze with so much more to share

What moments passed into the summer’s air

      Amazingly tender, no matter if spring/summer romance or the finality of it all...

      It starts out so sweet and ends with a bit of sadness but your words still cause one to dream of the beauty of love.

      So very beautiful. The flow of each line of the story was fluid to next. Everything written in such a way that the reader will feel the emotion present which changes throughout the poem. Voted up, awesome, and beautiful--all for that it was. Thank you for a very enjoyable read.
