Your Leaves

Where have you gone for leaves are changing colors
Sun sinks behind leaving leaves brown, wilted
Falling to ground now piling with old leaves
I pick one up, it cracks, crumbling in my hand
Like a memory fading in distant wind
Will you come back or are you gone forever?
Leaves left on tree whisper your name
Until they fall silent, unplucking themselves
They too fall in spiral down to cold ground
I don’t dare touch for they too will crumble to dust
Leaving me with nothing left of you
I am now left staring at a naked tree
That once was full of leaves now gone
Are you really gone, gone forever?
