Inspired by my love my father who we lost two weeks ago. Its his birthday today so being able to write on this day means more to me than any other.
Leaves fall as Autumn nears
Like memories held dear
They slip away and come again in Spring.
A child trips and falls
In haste losing their balance
Like a heart consumed by loss.
Rain gently falls within a mist
In its grey depressing colours
It refreshes like long held back tears.
Time falls away with every breath
With futility we seek to deny it
Clinging to a special memory eternally.
Grace falls from those too vain
Fighting against time and fate
Takes the youth they seek to keep.
Love falls from every beating heart
Not a memory felt in haste
Nor lost in mist
Not futile or vain
But pure, sincere and everlasting
Even when life leaves us.
