The last leaf’s falling from the tree
Farewell to autumn!
Snowflakes start their waltzing spree
To better future blossom.
Your hair darling turned to gray
As well as mine.
Our years together – a safety bay,
They are like aged wine.
More often I would love to hug,
To feel your warm embrace,
Near the fireplace to snug,
To kiss your lovely face.
I’d like to cuddle up to you
And to escape the loneliness.
In spite of time and old view
Remain with lasting beautiness.
And let the wind rage outdoor,
It won’t change our feelings.
I want to love you more and more,
Up to the end of our livings.
