When yesterday fades, only a memory remains
With the light of a new day
Comes the realization that come what may
I will never hear your voice again,
or catch you smile from across the room
when you notice that I’ve arrived home safe
Yesterday, forever seemed so far away
But when you took your last breath, those many months ago
I had no choice but to let you go to your final resting place
and now….. now I search in the changing colours of the autumn leaves
for the happiness we shared, as we crossed the miles of countryside
for Mother Nature’s fall palette of golden yellows, rusted orange and reds,
oh how we rejoiced, laughing and sharing in her glorious showcase of colours that shone in the sunlight, bright golds, bronze and tattered greens
the bark on the trees, changing with the shadows as the sun drifted across the autumn skies. Gnarled knots and open wounds showed off their textures on the aging trees, while the young saplings did their best to show they were full of promise.
Life does go on, and we did vow, we would love with no regrets,
I have no regrets … you are here in every colour Mother Nature puts on display
Love is pure and love is true, when you accept that love is here to stay.
Today was spent …missing you.
