Summer's Love

Written by: Crystal Brown

Sun kissed skin glows in the bright rays
Sitting on the green grass on a warm summer’s day
You look at me
You only smile for a second and mumble the words “you’re beautiful”
A chuckle bursts between us as you look up at the big blue sky
You close your eyes and then open them again
As you tilt your head and breathe in summer’s air

You look at me
You look straight into my eyes and manage to blurt out “wow”
I close my bright green eyes playfully almost in a flirtatious way to make you suffer
I smile with no words to say
I smile and open my eyes to the world
I bring my view to our hands, looking down at your hand in mine

You look at me
As a flashback crosses my mind 
You hold the hand that used to tremble, the hand that shook too many goodbyes
As I sit there trying not to remember painful thoughts and bad memories
You come in close and hug me tight

I didn’t believe love existed
I didn’t want to be believe in finding true love because I didn’t believe I would ever find one
I didn’t think that I could ever be so happy
Looking down at our hands and feeling your touch I somehow felt so comfortable
And when you looked into my eyes I felt a feeling I never felt before 
I knew in that instant it had to be the feeling of someone falling in love 

You look at me
I look at you
I know I am in love
I know I found the one
The one who can make me smile on a warm summer’s day under the sun
