Summer Breeze

Enjoying the last of the

warm enveloping summer breeze

while the warm waves

remain such a heavenly tease


Before we know it school will be here

And the cool autumn days

But I refuse to leave summer behind

Even though it's hotter than a blaze


I've been so happy with my love and family

Now I know what it is to laugh til I cry

I am so fortunate in so many ways

Thoughts of the coming seasons make me sigh


Missed many summer days due to surgery

But I worked hard and it didn't slow me down

Making up for the days in the sunshine

Refusing to wear a frown!
