Autumn is nipping at my ankles

The sun has shifted in the sky.

This is a season of change and sorrow

I’m having to say goodbye


The days are getting cooler,

Leaves are dying on the bough.

I’m shedding my attachment,

I’m getting over you now.


The nights are getting longer,

I miss your smiling face.

I miss your body in my bed

blossoming, in my embrace.


Soon the icy winter winds

will blow my longing away

as sure as is my beating heart

As day follows night follows day
