What Will Be

We look forward to it.
The thoughts linger from the past.
Memories of what was.
What will be.
Not too warm.
Walk out the door and relax.
The dreams of many.
Not always true.

Clouds and rain remain.
Wind that blows the chimes.
Beaches were made to walk and run.
Put up nets and see them play.
Eye candy for the young.
Reminders of youthful days for others.
Buckets and shovels with sand.
Rolls of waves or just the tides with shells.

The trails of green.
Sitting by the fires.
Looking at stars that shine above.

It's what I remember from childhood.
The warmer days and nights.
Enjoying the best of what we get.
Not those rainy ones.

Too soon it's gone.
Talks begin of what to do next year.
While sitting on the deck,
I will always remember
the feeling I get
when the word is mentioned.

Absolutely. It is gone too soon.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
