I will miss you June. You gave so much, so effortlessly.

I will always celebrate you, in purple and green.

Because, you June, brought me my baby,

who grew along with you every year. She is the reason I first noticed you, June.
Thank you.

See you next year. I will be eagerly waiting for you to come again..
