This summer will not pass me by
For I cannot get that time back ever.
It will be a summer of no regrets,
A summer of love,
A summer that I make my own.
I will spend it in
Ways that give me joy–
More time outside than inside,
More laughter and less tears,
More music, theater, poetry under the stars.
I will seek pleasure
That knocks my socks off
In all sorts of ways.
I will be present in
The moments I share with my love,
The time spent with my friends,
The fun I have with my daughters.
It will be a summer I create,
Filled with memories
Of a lifetime.
