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.
