Looks like
Summer
Is over
Come again?

I’ve been
Facing it
Brave like
A soldier

Good night
My Darling
We’ll love like
We’re older
And then

You gave me
You gave me your answer

You gave me
You gave me your answer
It’ll guide you
Guide you home

You gave me
You gave me your answer
It’ll guide you
Guide you home

Looks like
Summer
Is over
It’ll come again

I’ve been
Facing it
With a cold shoulder

Good Night
My darling
We’ll love getting older

Good night
Please wake me
When mornings
Are colder

Notes
This summer has been one of the most transformative periods of my life. It was the summer when I found my person, and that’s a pretty big deal. With work taking her temporarily abroad, and my academic calendar suddenly springing to life, there is little denying that summer has come to a stop, and this period is something new. Life continues to be interesting, exciting, and unpredictable, but this moment deserves the kind of observance that I can only offer it via a song on Mount Everest. For a few years now, it is how I have marked the change in the seasons, and this particular change in season seems particularly important. How do you mark the change of the season that changed everything? This song is my attempt…

One thought on “Week 197 // Summer’s End

  1. This is a nice tribute to the idea that our joy is enhanced by loss. It is the coming and going, the light and the dark, and the clouds and the clear sky that provide the contrast that give life its depth and meaning. Well done.
