The Autumn Leaves Have Fallen

All the trees are barren now Leaves fallen to the ground Rustling of my footsteps Is the only sound around Looking at the trees in winter Many memories it does bring As they wait in winters nakedness Till they dress again for spring Remember when the branches Gave birth to leaves of green How we shared a loving kiss As we talked about our dream The walk we took in autumn As the colors burst above Heart carved in a maples bark Professing everlasting love The virginity we both lost Underneath that tree of dreams Doesn't seem that long ago Guess it's longer than it seems Maples old and twisted now Bark turned a weathered grey Heart once I carved with love It too starts to fade away Though the Lord has taken you They say to a better place Can't help my tears that fall As this faded heart I trace
