Autumn Mist

Like the autumn goes…so it seems 
I wonder how the leaves know 
When to fall and drift away
Losing a loved one, is like that 
Sometimes you know it’s coming 
And sometimes it’s here and gone 
As the heart is the one left to grieve 
Wondering where and why 
it feels so empty now

Love is fleeting, love divine 
So the writers say, but still I wonder 
Why love has to hurt so much? 
Is it because true love costs so much 
But gives ever more?

Or is it because of our old wounds 
That we carry through our lives 
Like a trunk of old photos and 
memories we never want to keep 
But somehow can’t throw away

Maybe the only way to really love 
Is to really love, to give away 
More than just a feeling, and more than 
Just a greeting card, maybe 
Love is something we’re born with 
But are afraid to use

When at last we find love in the losing 
Rushing through a side door. 
Perhaps it was waiting for us, in some 
sweet and sad disguise 
Or maybe it comes upon a soul 
Like an autumn mist
