Dear Summer, I wish you could stay forever, but sadly you can’t. But I’m here to tell you why I don’t want you to leave… jumping in the icy cold pool, sunburn on the hot sandy beach, ice cream dripping down on my chin, fishing along the waves as the fish smile at me, playing games on the hot sand, football on the beach, gazing in the summer sun and fish n chips on the beach as we watch the sun dive in the sea. That is why I don’t want you to leave.
