Leaving Autumn Dreams Behind (with much reluctance)

Endless, golden October afternoon

.

There we found our river,

A simple quiet.

Our place.

.

Along ocean sand.

Under a setting November sun.

Another afternoon for us

Each walking little paths,

Soon shared.

.

Returning,

We convened with water.

Falling from dark December skies.

We found ourselves then.

Picking up little bits

of the dreams to

Hold us tight.

.

We wondered along the creek

Through snow, woods and

All along the grassy hills.

.

Together,

At year’s end we met these places.

And we arrayed our dreams and desires

Like Christmas gifts under our tree.

.

I saw the blue green water dreams

Deep in your gaze.

You saw those places in my eyes,

Color of fall.

.

And I still want to hold onto it

Before you are even gone.

.

Now all those little dreams

Scattered.

Washing away in the rain,

Across the hills,

Into creeks, rivers and oceans.

Back to those places.

.

But these places,

We will walk again

On our own paths,

Gathering up all of those dreams

And the new stories they will tell.

.

Goodbye, my love.

I will always hold you

In my dreams.
