Sweet Summer Love

Dedication: To Christine for the pain that we brought to one another and the joys that could have been if we were other souls.

Sweet Summer Love

You asked me if I ever really loved you
And there was no way that I could give you an answer then
As we stared out into the ocean wrapped around each other.
Now I can give you that answer.
I am sorry, but the answer is no.
I never loved you in the way that you wanted me to.
I cared for you and wanted you.
And I enjoyed you.
But to love someone, you must surrender your heart.
And that is something that I could never do.
Farewell my sweet summer love.
