Upon a summer,
You caught the fever.
I know, I had it too
And the days flew
You admired the finest things
Found time to laugh aloud
To share the sweetest words
You were happy in the moment

In a dream
It was a beautiful thing
We had the world to discover
You opened your deepest deep
I saw the treasures there
It made me smile
As you became a free thing
Dancing through my life

More, once again
I long to see it
The wild, happy thing
With autumn came chill
You retreated
Became a care worn
Member of humanity
Sadness replaced joy
Please allow yourself to be
Once more.
