Our Song - Poem by Julie Smith

Summertime's ending but winter is far
Passing the time at the cinema
Sun, swimming pool and buying new clothes
Changing room fun and taking cool photos

New friend on Facebook, he's my little secret
He's taking my heart and beginning to keep it
Cute words are exchanged and we talk everyday
It's a pity that he is so far away

Phone under my pillow and waking up smiling
Tears of joy only can ruin my styling
Watching the fireworks in a crowd by the river
And his sweet compliments making me shiver

I am in the kitchen and singing along
Dancing in the dimmed light to 'Our Song'
I'm sliding down the refrigerator door
Full moon, texting and tears on the floor

Decorating my room
And the promise to meet soon
Month of August, though so far apart
I'll always keep this time close to my heart

Topic(s) of this poem: beginning, boyfriend, first love, fun, love, love and friendship, secret, singing, song, summer

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is the poem I love the most because it describes how everything began, last summer, the most beautiful, magical time... Can't believe it's been a year. One night I was listening to Taylor Swift's song 'Our Song' and I was crying because everything was so beautiful... It will never be as innocent and sweet as that... Thank you month of August <3

    Hi Julie This would be a very cool lyric. The tune could be funky or hip-hoppy even. Check out some young good musicians and show this very creative poem to him or her. Greetings, Paul (Report) Reply
