Before summer
By Laura Zucca-Scott

Before summer
We will taste the snow
Dance on ice
And chase the stars
Before summer
We will cry our tears
For losses and regrets
Paint the future indigo blue
Before summer
We will embark on a ghost train
Howling in the wind
Scraping tomorrow
And when the summer comes
We will greet the sun
Knowing that life triumphs
Against all odds
Flying high
Was always the only choice
