The Children of Summer
The soft and lazy smother-heat of the summer
Is approaching ready to twine itself around
Your face and legs and arms to create
Half-lid eyes and slow smiles and a warm heart.
The sun-scorched blush of laughing cheeks
Is not here yet but the air whispers Soon
And it’s not long until you stop only existing and
Start feeling and living once again.
Music plays soft in still air stirred only
By the heavy breeze that makes its way
In through screened windows and
Blustering curtains that sweep like dancing.
Cold ice and sticky syrup melt down
Hands darkened by the season only
To be licked up a moment later with
A smile bright and light as the stars.
You are beautiful like this
My smiling summer girl and
My laughing summer boy and
I want you to stay like this while you can.
You deserve everything the summer brings
All the grins and memories and adventures
That come from sun and water and rain and
You deserve above all to be happy.
