Colours in Full Glory
The temperature falls as do the autumn leaves in all their colourful glory
Another summer has come to an end and I feel so melancholy
Summer is the best part of the year, at least it is for me
But seasons change, the world keeps turning, turning, as time marches on relentlessly
What if I could have frozen time when I was most vital and young,
And had before me the best years still yet to come?
–But then I would have frozen time too soon–
One day, I awoke, and I realized it had passed, gone by
In the present, now I live, because on the future, I cannot rely
It is as they say, the autumn of my life, so like the season, I’ll embrace the colours in their full glory
Savour what I can before the cold, the bitter cold, takes a strangle hold on me.
