Autumn leaves are falling
as I look back on life.
Never thought I'd live this long
through the trouble, toil and strife.
The road has been a rocky one
mostly scary, dark and grey
and God sure had to carry me
many times along the way.
As I watch the wind blown leaves
tossed wildly on the ground;
I'm reminded of the way life was
before your love I found.
You have no way of knowing
how your love has changed this man.
So I will strive in every way
to be the best I can.
