I’ve Saved The Summer.


I’ve Saved The Summer
By Rod McKuen

I’ve saved the summer
and I give it all to you
to hold on winter morning
when the snow is new.

I’ve saved some sunlight
if you should ever need
a place away from darkness
where your mind can feed.

And for myself I’ve kept your smile
when you were but nineteen,
till you’re older you’ll not know
what brave young smiles can mean.

I know no answers
to help you on your way
the answers lie somewhere
at the bottom of the day.

But if you’ve a need for love
I’ll give you all I own
it might help you down the road
till you’ve found your own.
