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.
