As The Season Turns

As the season turns,

My heart takes a leap,

To see you steady,

Love never fading.

And I hope,

Unlike the past,

After the big freeze,

Spring’s bright promises,

Beauty and renewal,

Won’t beckon you away.

An Autumnal Love

Out of nowhere, you burst forth.

You gave up on slipping in a long time ago.

A gradual burn was never your style.

You never could wait to rush in,

Engulf me within your hug,

Fill my lungs with your cologne of

Freshly fallen rain and bonfires.

Your eyes burn brightly aint the path you tred.

Misty mornings are filled with your breath.

Evenings warmed by fireside glows,

Afternoon cheeks kissed bright pink.

Promises whispered in the wind.

Soup-filled souls gazing lazily.

You appeared like a firework,

A flash of colour upon this earth.

You’ll disappear like the mist,

Gone, before we know…
