certain summers


Certain summers

I can remember  

We spent swimming in the sea.


The Ocean waves

Rolling and breaking

On my little girls and me


We wore funny hats

And silly glasses

For blocking out the sun


We never had much money

But we always

Had lots of fun


 In the evenings

 On the boardwalk

 Ride the rides and play the games


Well the girls are

All grown now

But the memories remain


 Now when I taste

 Saltwater taffy

 They come rushing back again


 Certain summers

 I can remember

 I wish they never had to end

    Perfectly timed my friend
    For I just told myself
    I'm rushing past those days
    So I'll listen to this warning
    Making sure i have something to play
