love in summer
I think back
to this time last year
we'd had such fun
all through the summer
no worries, no cares
just us
doing the things
that young lovers do
in the heat of the day
and the heat of the night

never thought about the future
lived for the moment
took it day by day
loving one another
deeply, with such passion
it was a fun wild ride
but so fulfilling, so satisfying
a summer of joy

then summer ended
we knew it was coming
the end of our time
and the end of the season
but chose to ignore it
till it did finally come
and we were forced to part
you went your way
and I went mine

at first we wrote, emailed
chatted daily on the net
there were promises made
then promises broken
letters not written
phone calls not made
how did this happen
we'd made plans
talked of a lifetime
and now, nothing

was it me
did I do something wrong
asked too many questions
came on too strong
or was it you
all talk but no action
no true commitment at all
you'd got your leg over
put another notch
in your belt

was it all just lies
a facade for your ego
did you ever love me
ever, at all
or am I just a number
a name in your black book
your plaything over summer
a toy for your amusement
nothing more

I'm sure I know the answer
it's written in thin air
it was just a brief summer romance
not a long lasting affair
