    summer
    as light and happy and free like a butterfly
    and warm and sweet and innocent as her name
    innocent and pure
    i may not know your private life lessons
    but i see your spirit
    it exudes through your pores and
    dances brightly in your eyes
    innocence
    when men see a girl like you
    summer
    they don't always have your best in mind
    sumer so don't let anyone take that from you
    that purity
    be careful and be sure and be mindful
    of your wants
    of your needs
    of your God who can provide you with both
    without ever compromising your purity
    i don't know you privately
    i don't know what someone may
    (and i don't really need to)
    because i see in you what you should always treasure
    and was inspired to write for you
    this piece
    don't ever compromise your true beliefs
    for what you hold is truly a treasure
    summer.

    if they don't feel special now they never will. I feel special just reading it. sometimes we all need somebody to care and let us know that we are special.

    Thanks for sharing with all of us.

    Miss K-ness....

    I always enjoy reading you, sis! This one is special to me because you say what is important for all 'summers' to hear. Someone is always 'watching'....and we may be all the 'love' they will ever see.

    Encourage us with your flow! Thank you
