ONLY SO MANY SUMMERS, SO MANY SPRINGS

ONLY SO MANY SUMMERS

SO MANY SPRINGS

The sun rises and the sun sets, I’ve seen this,

Will, there be another, I take it in as it’s my last.

Morning breaks, will this be the last time I awake,

Feel the morning, feel the beauty of the day.

I stand in the dark night, feeling the calm breeze,

A full moon rises, will this be the last dark night as I see the nights light.

The ocean and mountains are alive through time,

The clouds with their wind blown shapes are forever in the sky.

Only so many Summers, so many Springs,

To dance in the sand, swim in the never ending waves.

To see daylight awake, to see the night close its eyes,

To feel the wind until it says goodbye.

So little time to make memories before we have to go away.

  1. I am so very sorry for your loss, Keith. My mom passed away 20 years ago and I still miss her dreadfully. You will continue to miss your mom, too, until the day when marvelous memories start creeping in. Oh you will still miss her, no doubt about that, but good memories will take away some of the bitterness.
