I don’t feel ready for this season to change.
I’m surrounded by transforming leaves, shortening days, and colder ways.
Inside I feel the momentum of life, adulthood, propelling me forward
Into the next act of my life’s stage.
But just as I long for Fall’s brisk temperature and enchanting colors,
I still feel I am leaving another summer love behind.
And while my senses, head, and heart know it’s time for new
My inner being also knows this next stage will take me to
A time in my life from which I will never turn back.
So as I lay my younger, warmer being down in the midst of these fallen leaves
I pray this new season will bring even more vibrant colors for me to see.
