A Sweet Summer Song

Rating: 5.0
As purple blossoms glisten in the rain,
the birds chirp their sweet summer song.
Lingering scents of lilac delights my senses,
so I close my eyes and ponder thoughts of you.
I hear the hum of racing cars speeding to unknown places.
Loud vehicles hauntingly surreal yet far off in a distance.
As I lean back in the lounge submerging myself
into natures enchanting chirps,
the light misty drizzle lands on my exposed skin,
each tiny dropp fills me with endless hope!
A new season has begun with blue skies and happiness;
the heavens open up and shine on me!
While the world goes by I dream of you!
I know you’re the one for me....
I feel so blessed that you have been waiting for me too!
