The Last Summer Rose (poem)

Updated on July 8, 2012

I think back to days without end

Where dreams that came true were the trend

With kisses around every bend

And angels were there to attend

A time without worries or woes

The days of the last summer rose


Youth’s madness we put on display

As hand in hand we met each day

And let our hearts show us the way

To havens of lovers’ repose

Where fantasies frolic and stray

The days of the last summer rose


Each heartbeat held moments of you

Each smile and my world would renew

Such magic that from your eyes flows

Such heavens for wiles to pass through

The promised tomorrow in view

The days of the last summer rose


Caresses as sun slowly set

And moonlight its mood to impose

A scent one can never forget

Recalling the day that we met

As twilight beheld silhouette

The days of the last summer rose


I wonder about times like those

Did they truly happen at all

These pictures on yesterday’s wall

As sunsets again seems to fall

Sweet flower please help me recall

The days of the last summer rose

Jamie Bochert by Lachlan Bailey

      The photo does match your poem so well! Love the red symbolism in the photo and poem. Passion and romance to hope for.

      Very poetic and pretty. I love it. The days of the last Summer rose sounds so nostalgic just as a phrase by itself!

      Lovely poem! It really reflects the way we all felt when we were young - before life and experience tempered us so.

      Mhatter, my eyes are watery right now, and I'm not even chopping onions! This is one truly beautiful poem. The person who inspired this seems to come alive through your words. The music is truly beautiful and makes the poem much more powerful. You've outdone yourself with this one. Congrats!
