Longing

14818-Yellow-Beach-Chairs

longing for hot summer days

can’t say I’ll change my ways

longing for warm summer sun

daydreams never one and done

longing to etch in flaxen sand

thoughts sifting through my hands

longing for a cool summer breeze

can’t say, my soul, not at ease

longing for a soft summer rain

calming plip plops soothe the pain

longing for a special someone

daydreams never one and done
