A Sad Day in September

As these leaves begin to turn,
My mind drifts to you.
This fall is the third
And I’m still so confused.

My heart feels heavy,
As the cool wind blows.
My feelings are empty,
Despite love I have and know.

I see colors of warm
Like orange,  yellow and red.
But inside is a brewing storm,
Making me cold, instead.

Your porch swing is a place
I often remember.
I still see your happy face,
As we sip coffee together.

You’re gone and those autumn days
Are left far behind.
Leaving me broken today,
Wishing I could press rewind.

I close my eyes tight
And let the tears flow.
I know tomorrow I’ll be alright,
And the sadness will go.
