Autumn Melody

Now I know I am mortal
I often heard their voices
But now I know their words
Fall is all around me
Bright with its drama
At first I felt sadness
When the leaves changed color
And began to fall
Then a tear dropped
Under a wing of geese
That passed overhead
But in that still moment
I could see all the way through
The full depth of my love
For this place
That has always loved me
The leaves will return
The geese are blown elsewhere
So still in this moment
I hold more love
Than I ever knew before
