Seasons

 

I met you in the autumn of my life

You set yourself apart,

So perfect you were with all your imperfections

I never noticed them at all

We played each other’s demons

They danced for us, mine on tiptoes

Yours bracing for the fall

I tried so hard to hold us together

Until we fell imperfectly apart.

I still look for you in embers

You cause the smolder in my heart

Winter is still upon us

Fitting that your heart has grown so cold
