The summer sun brought a new kind of love into our lives,
And it made us both shine -
something neither one of us had done
In a long time.
We both fell too hard,
Discovering something that was unknown to us.
We found joy, happiness, and even love.
It was so beautiful.
We went through so much together in the short time you were here.
We had fun-lots of fun.
We laughed and cried together,
sharing secrets with one another.
I can honestly say you were the first person I ever fell in love with.
But we just didn't make it.
What went wrong?
Were we too serious?
I loved you so much and we were so happy together,
But it just wasn't enough.
What is enough?
More love? More laughter?
We never had the chance to find out.
You're gone now, I'm sorry to say.
You've begun a new life and
I'm still here picking up the pieces-
Still living for yesterday
When you were here with me -
Loving me and needing me.
So what now?
I still love you very much and
There will always be a special place for you in my heart.
Winter's coming on now and
I must leave the memories behind and
Begin a new life of my own,
And wait for spring -
The dawning of a new love.
I hope we have the chance to meet again
So we can pick up where it ended,
But until then just remember
I love you and please be happy.
God bless the summer sun
And all the love and happiness it brings.
