Summer is the season of love; flowers have finally bloomed, birds' beautiful songs echo throughout the day, and that special person is there to share in the summer's glory. Now, if you're like me, you love to write- especially outside. Nothing beats a hot summer day, sitting on a picnic blanket with pen and notebook in hand. There's something about the sun and humidity that just motivates us to write! So, what could be more fitting than a collection of love poems, to share with those you hold close. Oh, and all of these are written by yours truly!
With you, I'm always in space,
With you I live above the clouds.
The sun shines differently up here.
With you I think of nothing but...
how much you mean to me
and the love I have for you.
Remind me to breathe
and lay with me until the world ends.
I used to be scared of forever
I used to be scared of the dark.
It's funny how things change.
And I thought to myself,
how selfish it is to miss you.
For there are people out there
with no one to miss at all.
Comforted, we stand tall and together.
How funny it is to realize
the sweetest thing in my life isn't a sweet at all.
You struck me like lightning.
my love boomed louder than thunder.
Flowers have a language of their own.
They speak of love and new beginnings,
of courage and strength.
Flowers hold in their petals what cannot be said:
the things we think, but fail to say.
They're not much different than us,
flowers that is.
For in the soil called life we were planted,
and in this garden called love we will grow.
The moment I breathed you in.
I knew I would never exhale.
Ever since I was little, I have loved to write. I would write on napkins at restaurants, and random pieces of paper throughout the house. There's something about written word that seems more moving and powerful than the spoken; It's more charged. Since coming to college, I have begun writing more emotional and meaningful poems. They are universal- anyone can read them and find comfort. Whether its your first time picking up a pen (I sure hope it's not), or something you do every day, write. It will make you feel better! And what better time to get started then now- during the summer! You have plenty of time on your hands, and the sun is just begging you to write.
