An Ode to August

By
Oh August...

I know that I never really had a chance...
I know that our relationship was not meant to last...
But why end it all now?
It wasn't meant to be this way...

It's been a month already? It seemed like only yesterday...
Only yesterday you met me with open arms, blue skies, and sunny days...
As your loving rays bronzed my skin, my heart grew warm with thoughts of you...

It's been a month already? It seemed like only yesterday...
Only yesterday you sat beside me, idly watching the hours slip by, thinking it would last forever...
As I watched the birdie fly so high, I fantasized that it was I, soaring on the hopes and dreams of summer glee eternally....

It's been a month already? It seemed like only yesterday...
Only yesterday I flicked the bee who wandered on our game of monopoly, wondering if he'd ever go away...
As I waded in the shallow water, looking for yet another shell, I felt my heart begin to swell with joyful peace and tranquility...

It's been a month already? It seemed like only yesterday....
Only yesterday we spent two hours for twenty seconds of screaming terror, racing up then down again, hoping this wasn't our life's end....
As I cheered on Michael Phelps to yet a fourth gold medal victory, I thought aloud "Why not me? I could of been a contender..."

It's been a month already? It seemed like only yesterday...
Only yesterday I read for mornings on end, undisturbed, until my brother's water gun brought me back to reality...
As I chased him round the yard, yelling "You big meanie!! Why won't you let me be!", I realized that all relationships have ups and downs...and little brothers...

It's been a month already? It seemed like only yesterday...
