return of the season


 

The night gets darker, I walk by the moonlight

I feel your presence, yet I long for your sight

 

The small café on the other side of the road

Is still open, facing your quiet, lonely abode

 

The tired old autumn leaves fall to the ground

Waiting perhaps, to return as the seasons turn around

 

And among them I walk, feeling you by my side

Holding my hand, following the stars as our only guide

 

And they turn dim in the golden sky, the night is gone

I am still there waiting for you to be back to where you belong!

    Kindred Spirit, we see without but what when that we view move within for a closer walk?

    I Have enjoyed reading it. I seem to love the line:

    “The tired old autumn leaves fall to the ground

    Waiting perhaps, to return as the seasons turn around”

    Great Work!

      I used that line as a metaphor to summarise the whole poem. Thanks for liking 🙂

    Hmmm….nostalgic feelings here…but I like it, every bit of your thoughts you shared here…:)

    Is this real, I mean, talking from a real experience? Or just some poem of nostalgic thoughts…:) I was transported by your poem to some real scenario!

    I love it! 🙂

      Wow…that was a beautiful comment..thank you. It isn’t exactly real….I was listening to some old songs when this concept popped into my head and I knew I had to write something like this 🙂 Thanks again!!

    thanks for this, the imagery is smooth and colourful, got an impression of somewhere in France – so many lost loves out there. thanks again.
