Autumn Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom


The morning light is dim grey
and the sun struggles to break through,
the streetlight is still shining
as if the night does not want to go,
a turtle dove sings praises to the morning sun

and I lay in the comfort of your loving arms
while I listen to the sounds around me,
autumn is here and the weather is changing
the leaves of the trees wear the colours of the morning sun
and I look at them falling to the ground.

Moments between us are photo perfect
when your fingers tickle walk over my naked body
and I remember why I do love you more every day
as you are the one that my soul is bound to forever

and while the autumn leaves fall
I know that the late harvest will bear bountiful
after the summer rains
and that I do not need to fear
the changes that live may bring.

Autumn is but a season but love is for a lifetime.
