When It's Fall

Updated on July 13, 2012

I was walking outside

In late September

When I noticed the leaves

And they made me remember.

I see them fall and start to think

And suddenly I feel my heart sink

Because it was fall when we met

And you caught my first glance

It was fall when we kissed

And began a romance

It was fall when I struggled

And I was too weak

It was fall when you caught me

And pulled me to my feet.

It was fall when I knew that you stole my heart

But winter soon followed and tore us apart.

It was winter when you

Began to turn cold

It was winter when I

Watched everything fold.

It was winter when I

Saw I'd been blind

It was winder when you

Showed your true side.

I pushed and I pushed

But the snow just kept coming

I tried and I tried

But my heart just quit running.

I blink and I'm back

More leaves start to turn

I blink and I feel

My eyes start to burn.

But like the leaves change

So too, must we

I'll soon forget you

Like you've forgotten me.

      Thank you for the comments!

      I'm glad you liked the ending, I was struggling with it for a little while because I just couldn't decide how I wanted it to sound.
