A Good-Bye & A Hello - Poem by Tiger Lily Love

Good-Bye sweet, sweet summer, must you always go away?
Oh how I shall miss your short warm nights and long hot days
For once can't you be here to stay?

This summer shall remain special to me
In my memory this summer will forever more be

No it wasn't a summer of love, loss, or mystery
But was a summer of realization
A summer of learning more about me

This Summer I asked questions about myself that I never did before
This summer I answered those questions honestly
Pondered many thoughts
And did so much more

This summer during the warm nights I looked up at the stars
And wondered if this lifestyle was for me

This summer I looked up at the stars
And was forced to answer honestly
If this was where I wanted to be

Oh summer even though I'll miss you so
A new season is around the corner
To Fall I must say hello

While I shall miss staring up at the stars
While the warm summer breeze plays with my hair
I won't mind the falling leaves or chilling air

While I'll miss being warmed by the sun's never ending rays
I won't mind watching the leaves turn to different colors & shades
Or as the chilly air picks up the falling leaves
And blows them away

While it somewhat pains me to bid farewell
To summer that has left me forever changed

Maybe my fall will be like my summer
Maybe by the end of it I'll never be the same

So I must say goodbye to you summer
But I'm not to distressed or worried at all
After all who knows how much I'll have discovered about myself
By the end of beautiful Fall

    Always learning new things about myself and from others! A very optimistic poem about growing up! I am still growing up. In fact, I think I prefer never to get too grown up! This was a pleasing read! (Report) Reply
