Summer Falls to Winter

 

I watch your beautiful opulent green leaves every morning

You, my muse, filled my heart with happiness

In your benevolence you gave a place for the bird to sing

You made me smile every day

 

But one day you decided to leave

Alienating me, You slowly turned your back on me

I watched your beauty turn to a deep brown 

You became sick and frail, I touched your leaves 

But they disintegrated in my palm leaving me bereft

 

Just as the weather became colder you became colder

I looked to you for comfort but you where impervious to my longings

Instead you cover yourself with a blanket of ice

 

I lay beside you stolidly

Comforting you but still your leaves fell and your demise came

When the wind came you let it take you

Your leaves, Your roots, Your bones

Everything.

When the snow dissipated I was left to clean up your leaves.
