  • A Summer Place

    Daybreak came to light

    clear and cold

    with a distant sun

    that hinted summer was gone




    A song came to mind

    That takes me back in time

    When I first saw you on that beach

    swaying’ to the sound of the waves




    Every time I hear that song

    I get high on your memory

    Strange how a song sounds like a memory

    like a recording of a summers day

    on that beach

    somewhere only we know.




    Oh Oh Oh

    Laying on that blanket on that beach

    I turned and saw you swaying

    I smiled at you, you smiled at me

    Then I walked up to you and

    When I looked into your eyes

    My heart felt like an unborn baby’s

    first heartbeat saying hello

    I knew I’d met the girl

    I swore I’d never find

    and fell into you




    That first dance

    feet in the sand

    sinking deeper and deeper

    as we listened to our song

    a slow dance of what’s to come




    That first kiss at the spot

    where a growing beach-pea

    was binding the sand our hearts were

    growing and binding our love.




    As the sky coaxed the mood

    from daylight to moonlight,

    in the still of the night

    you said stay,

    And it was complete.




    Every time I hear that song

    I think about you and get high

    on your memory

    Strange how a song sounds like a memory

    like a recording of a summers day

    on that beach

    somewhere only we know.

    Sounds and scents always evoke nostalgia.

    Beautiful articulation of reminiscence!

      So real. So touching. Romeo and Juliet would be proud.

              Have you set this to music? It reads like lyrics to me and I'll bet would evoke memories for many.

                I have not set this to music yet, I still have some changes to make.
