Of Golden Leaves

‘Tis time to mend this wounded heart
Since it slowed to a miniscule beat
To see with my eyes the face of the world
And say ‘hello’ to all I greet.

My days are now of golden leaf
The fruit has passed its sell-by date
And the best of love has now gone,
The distance travelled has been great
And I have sung loves only song.

New hopes and fears now line my path
As I travel down this road alone
And running nature’s ultimate course,
Past mistakes my soul does now atone.

We make a grave in our heart for our sorrow
And wait for a greater peace than we have known
When fear and worry no longer matter
After we have reaped what we have sown.

    A very thoughtful treatment of the theme, and so very true. We are all on the same road and yet no one knows at what stage he or she is. Nice poem.

    Golden piece of gold
    and
    in old ways what gone
    has gone
    but made you brave
    with brain and heart / well done wish you the best

    A beautiful and thoughtful mellow write as autumn that knocks at the door now.....
    It remembers me some lines: 'Leaves believe
    such letting go is Faith
    and Faith is Grace
    and Grace is God
    and God is Love
    I agree with the leaves.(African-American poet Lucille Clifton)
