The Tail End

We tried to take it all in: wide skies, late sun, long walks, soft hands

We tried to live to the fullest, take advantage, burn the midnight oil, and greet the dawn.

We tried to devour every sweet morsel, every moment. To be grateful for what we have, and to share it with friends.

Now the Summer has ended, gently this time, and you are leaving in one week.

We knew it couldn’t last, that nothing lasts forever.

I think we did our best.
