As the summer air hits my face

Sweet with the smell of flowers and a secret hidden grace

It stirs up memories long past

Of a time that was not meant to last


I remember your smile of that summer long ago

As we sat entwined with the stars above and the water below

As our hearts beat as one like a fragile bird

And suffered the wrath of my father incurred

Of sneaking out late and whispering secrets

Of watching sunset and lengthening silhouettes


The summer air so warm and sultry

Spreads through the countryside like a living poetry

But this warm breeze was not to last

As the space between us grew as cold as glass

Separated by a gulf


The summer air hits my face

And takes me back to that place

Of past happiness
