Summer's Gone

Did I ever tell you the story of how Summer and I broke up?
Well, here it is then...

So, when I woke up that cloudy morning, Summer's bags were packed.

I asked, "Where you going Summer?"

"I'm leaving you. I'm taking all my things too,
The Sun,
The Sunsets,
The Heat,
The long days,
All of it."

"I see." I replied. "But why?"

"I'm done here, I'm done with you!"

"But, I need you."

"Our time together has come to an end, I hope someday you will understand.
You've changed -  I saw you wearing long pants and shoes the other day, and you wore a jacket yesterday.  You're back to your old ways...  No sunscreen, no sunglasses, no water bottle.

I'm not an idiot, I know you've been checking out Autumn's colours.  Its time for me to leave before this gets ugly. 

"Will you ever come back?"

"I'm not sure, we don't seem to get along too well lately. 
You live in a variable city, weather is so moody here. 
I don't think it likes me, and I don't want to be where I'm not wanted or appreciated.   
Deep down, I think that's why I gotta go,
You know,
For my well being."

"But Summer, that thing with Autumn, it was just that one time, and its not like..."

"Don't,
Just Don't.  
Do Not Go There!
We both know what happened, and don't go blaming it on a The Harvest Moon either."

"Ok, that's fair, I get it. 
Don't get me wrong, 
I adore you Summer, but I also like the other seasons.
Is there anything I can do or say?"

I'm glad you've been honest with me.
Most people just cry and whine when I have to go, as if I had a choice in the matter."

"Hey, a season's got to do what a season's got to do... I respect your decision."

"Thanks. 
For being there for me."

"Thank you Summer, you've been so awesome this year. 
I'm going down south this fall/winter.
I may surprise you.
Will you be there?"

"Can't commit to anything yet, we'll see."

'Sure I get it, Ciao Belle Estate.

...and that's how Summer and I broke up,
Ok, Ok, technically she broke up with me,
Regardless, Summer's gone,
And I have to deal with it now.

-----

Sometimes it's nobody's fault, 
Time passes,
Seasons change,
Old relationships end,
New ones begin,
Change is neither good or bad,
Its your willingness to accept and move on,
That makes all the difference.

Summer's gone...
If you see me embracing Autumn...
Now you know.
