Oh September

There are times in this world 
When it seems fit to dance
To run through the alleys
To skip and to prance

These times of our life
Are the times we remember
And then there’s the pain
Like last year’s September

The sun had already ceased
To warm the autumn air
The leaves had already begun
To fall down everywhere

Then I was naïve and childlike
I had no desire, I had no dream
And I couldn’t see the summer
Nor a single light’s beam

I was dark and unattainable
But nobody could really see
I felt lonely and alone
As if nobody cared for me

I pretended all was alright
As everyone does at times
Nobody saw through me
Save my paper, pen, and rhymes

I was lost in the shadow
I was wandering in the rain
Slipping, I hit my head
But I couldn’t feel the pain

Lying there I remembered
I remembered the memories
The smile-casting moments
Of parks and climbing trees

Oh – just to return to them
I knew I could get along
But even then I knew the truth
Those days were forever gone

There are times in this world 
When you can’t even move
You’re frozen In place
With no sense of groove

These times of our life
Are the times we remember
And I haven’t been truthful
It was this September

    Not a time to be sad, September is a glorious month to give inspiration and bring happiness just to be alive then. Cheer up my friend, February is the time to be sad.
