That Summer You Left

That Summer You Left

A Poem by yuhee

That summer filled with memories of you. The same summer you left. Inspired of Joe Hisaishi's Summer


That summer you left me

Leave a burnt scar in my heart

I will never forget how you smiled that day

Like the busy city lights I always see

Blinding in the night

Yet when day comes it all fades away


That summer you left me

Like the water balloon I got in the festival

Diffused and the waters gone

Your touch still lingers like it was just yesterday

But it’s not there like how you are not here

All were just vivid dreams of past I always relived


That summer you left me

I thought I heard the cicadas cry

Mournfully buzzing through my ears 

As the train already departed, I stood still 

And I started to cry


That summer you left me

The skies were filled with fireworks

Beautiful as it lit up the night

But as it disappeared into the thin air

It reminisce when my tears fall


That summer you left me

I was trapped seeing that moment

Like repeated flashbacks of a broken movie

Your goodbyes and farewells stuck on every wind

I keep hearing when summer comes back again


That summer you left me

As this spring is about to end 

Will I see you one more time?

Those sunflowers sways gently

Just as how I was that day

With the coming summer wind,  I look back

But still, I can't  find you

Thpse sunflowers sways gently (those)
Just as how I was that day
With the coming summer wind, I look back
But still, I can't find you

Such a beautiful poem filled with sadness..but oh it does makes you ache for the one... the one who left us behind hoping someday to see them again...

guess hope is like the shining sunflower :)
