Found on Pinterest on !0-10-15. Campfire.
The warmth of summer disappears
Like a thief vanishing in the dark of the night.
Cool winds dance across my body making me yearn
For remnants of a season already gone.
I notice a rainbow of colors hanging from trees
That are eager to shed their leaves.
They are gathering the strength they need
To get through the snows of winter.
I miss the warmth and passion of youth.
I carry with me pieces of my broken dreams,
And losses too numerous to count.
My heart beats slower in the Autumn of my life.
My mind is ready to shed these pieces
In order to make room for new growth.
I am gathering up the strength I need
To put hope back in my heart again.
