A little boy plays, outside in my sun

I don't want it to end, but I will spoil his fun

For now he feels warmth on his face as he runs

But I always change; a new season always comes

The leaves start to change, go dry and then fall

The little boy doesn't seem to notice at all

He plays and he jumps into a pile of leaves

He sits on a swing and sways in my breeze

Still I grow colder, attacking with icy chills

But everyday he comes out, and plays with me still

I'm sorry to change this way; for my unknown reasons

I'm sad and ashamed for my barrage of my seasons

I make the days shorter; less time for his fun

And to make matters worse, my clouds block out my sun

When my snow falls he merely smiles politely

puts on more clothes and bundles up tightly

His cheeks turn red; when he smiles they sting

Tiny snowflakes land on his eyelashes and cling

My seasons will change, but his touch turns the tables

My furious flurries - no match for snow angels

I don't deserve him and he deserves more

Loving my seasons is an unfair chore

Soon I will change and then I'll be warm

But before that, it will probably storm

I don't know why he stays through my seasons

I don't deserve him for so many reasons

I hope my warm days outweigh the cold ones

I hope he stays under my seasonal suns

I will not ever take him for granted

My seasons may change, but I am forever enchanted
