Seasons Never Wait
A gust of wind blows through my hair
I cannot breathe, despite the air.
The sun is shining, but I can’t feel its heat
I grab my chest and check for a beat.
The rain, it comes and it’s pouring down
My tears blend in and with rain, they drown.
Yet, they never seem to disappear
When the clouds are gone
And the sky is clear.
A rainbow stretches across the sky
An apology for the rain
Fully aware of its beauty
But it fails to heal my pain.
Leaves begin falling, lifeless from the trees
I shudder to think of a colder season
And like leaves I fall, to my knees.
Winter comes; days are short and cold
I know Spring is on its way
But I’m not excited for what it holds.
When there is no difference in my day.
Life returns again, to everything that’s died
But I have spent the last four seasons
Surrounded by beauty and still I cried.
It doesn’t matter the forecast,
There is no rhyme nor is there a reason
It doesn’t matter how I feel
There is no waiting, for the seasons.
There are moments, when in nature
I feel completely free
But when I am lost and broken
They do not wait for me.
