Light plays
on the surface of the leaves
glances off your hair
follows me in dreams.

August turns
waves its hand to summer smiles
a circle of goodbyes
pledges we will keep

following love.

You turn
sadness in your eye
a tremor in your smile
as if to ask me why.

Rain comes
battling through the night
I turn to touch your side
but you’re not there.

Light plays
another day another year
how they have flown from me
leaving me right here

listening to the breeze
whisper its love song.
