Leaves Upon the Autumn Wind

I contemplated our disdainful world gone mad

When the junk piled high in every room

And I watched every new actor in your midst

Betray you with an empty heartless drunken kiss

To see your princess smile I still adore

To simply sample your beauty’s form

When I dreamt in tactile feelings of your skin to amorously indulge

To trust the joy of your thoughts revealed in their sobriety

I wait to taste your magic lips and impassion your grace divine

Anticipating your fragrant giddy scent which delight one’s senses

In all of this I feel drawn to the man I’d hoped I’d be for you

For you have dispelled the loneliness I felt for so long

Like leaves scattered upon the autumn wind
