#LoveMadeVisible: One More Summer Gone, by Kristen Loughlin


One More Summer Gone

by Kristen Loughlin

I still remember
Days our footprints stained the shore,
When we wandered hand in hand,
When we asked for nothing more.

I still remember
When the sunsets came too soon,
But we danced from dusk to daylight,
Our only audience the moon.

I still remember
How the August wind grew cold,
How we thought we’d be forever
But the green faded to gold.

I still remember
How the autumn came to dawn.
Now we’re captured in a photograph
Of one more summer gone.
