Seasons

Location

I want to spend all summer dipping our toes in the water

 

and crunching ice while we complain about the heat.

 

And I want to run my fingers through your short hair

 

and laugh at the sun

 

while we sit under your fan in the sheet fort.

 

I want to roll in the colored leaves

 

and whisper our secrets we've never told

 

under the crisp autumn breeze.

 

And I want to steal your hoodies and

 

put my hands in your pockets.

but

 

I know you like holding my hands just as much

 

as I like holding yours.

 

And all winter we will be cuddled under the blankets

 

drinking hot tea and cocoa.

 

And your hair is longer now

 

but

 

I like running my fingers through it just the same.

 

And I love the way my body fits yours

 

while the rain is falling

 

and you hold me closer for extra warmth.

 

And when spring comes and the trees begin to bloom,

 

the air is warmer,

 

and its the months before life goes on.

 

and I am sad.

 

It doesn't seem fair,

 

decisions made earlier in the year.

 

College is coming up so fast I fear

 

that we won't be able to handle it.

 

But I'm waiting to see what next summer brings.
