Summers End

Its ending…
As the sun kisses my face goodbye,
feeling its embrace.

 

Its ending…
This firery relationship between us,
is slowly becoming memories,
memories that once was reality.

 

Its ending…
The laughs, the smiles,
the love for the blaze.
Rubbing my bare feet on the grass,
watching the leaves changing colors
like an adaptive reptile.

 

Its ending…
Feeling the greet of a cool breeze.
Here you are again, stepping back in my life.
Fall,
We meet again.
