McCauley Fall

Memories of long, warm sunny days
Best friends and true love by your side
Being so young, naive in so many ways
But still being tall enough to ride

Summer comes and goes so fast
Soon it’s back to work or school
Nothing that good was meant to last
That could be a second golden rule

In summertime so many years ago
I met the one I thought was meant for me
But I was never able to truly grow
Until I could set my true love free

It seems we need to spend our time
Enjoying things in life but soon moving on
Not letting go is almost a crime
Since one day soon all our days will be gone
