Summer Fling




I must admit,

my

Heart

has

Wandered.






On an Ocean Breeze,
I have let myself
Go.






I have stepped away from
life
{life, life, life}
as I know it
to embrace the
dream
of all
{the magic}
a day
can
hold.






Yes, it's true. I
confess,
I have
fallen.






And now I'm certain,
my heart
will never be the
same.





I have Loved.




I have Laughed.



I have Breathed.




I have followed
when the waves
whispered
my
name.




My heart aches ...




For the days spent together --





Stolen
Moments
{precious, fleeting and gone}.






But my heart
holds tight
the
memories
given.






Close my eyes,
and the

Dream

lingers
on.




In many ways
I've returned from my

Wanderings.

Time marches forward
to the rhythm of

Home.





But the breeze
beckons me
to return
to the

Sea.


And to the

Shore

my smitten heart
always
roams.









I have lost

my

Heart

to

Summer.

So sweet! Thanks for sharing! Leaving next Wednesday for the Gulf shores area...and I can't wait. I feel suffocated by this oppressive heat wave the Midwest is suffering from!

What a beautiful post. I too have lost my heart to summer but really I just want to lose it for more than a week or weekend but an entire summer off!
