Syrupy Sweet Summer Days

Bird songs, bright light
suddenly you're awake again
tangled sheets, stale sweat 
peeling yourself from the bed

Another lazy day
mornings spent alone
sipping coffee in sweet silence
a busy evening beckons

Little love notes exchanged by phone
a small secret in your hands, in your heart
syrupy sweet summer days
the earth is alive again

You are alive again
along the river's edge
shin deep in cool memories
the overlapping layers of life
