(I'll Always Remember You)
by Alan W. Jankowski
(New Jersey, USA)
People often pass through our lives,
And so many have come my way,
Some stay for a lifetime,
Others just for a day.
Yet others last just for a season,
And then they must move on,
The one that touched my heart,
Has now come and gone.
Though I knew you had to leave,
You could only stay a while,
I got to know your loving ways,
And ever-present smile.
Summertime girl I thank you,
For a summer filled with fun,
Nights so filled with passion,
Our days frolicking in the sun.
But will you ever think of me,
Now that we're apart?
Was I just another summer fling,
Or the one who stole your heart?
Though we've gone our separate ways,
And will each find someone new,
No matter what the future brings,
I'll always remember you.
