Coffee for your Heart- My Summer Love


Coffee for Your Heart-My Summer Love


By Susie


The fan whirs,

I wipe sweat

And push back matted hair.

The lake creeps up

In a certain rhythm

Singing a lullaby through

My screen window.

The clock ticks loud

Preaching to me

Of time and

Of seasons

Reminding me that in this season

The season of heat, and summer and joy and sweat

You are here with me,

My summer love,

You are

The gentle breeze that whispers

All is well.

The mighty tree that bends to shade

My sun scored heart.

You are

The ice-cold lemonade- frosty in my glass

quenching my deep soul thirst

You are

the watermelon juicing down

My face into my tummy

Filling me over and over with

All things sweet.

You are

The crescent moon

That strings up lights on my darkest nights

Twinkling reminders that

The dark

will never really be dark

Because I am with you,

My summer love.

In this season

And in the next

For today

And for always.

Forever we will be


Me and my summer love.


Psalm 74:17

You own the day, you own the night; you put stars and sun in place. You laid out the four corners of earth, shaped the seasons of summer and winter.
