I am autumn, I am fall

For I am the leaf that knows how to part

For I am the leaf that looks beautiful even when it falls

For I look beautiful against the setting sun or the street lamp

I have that glorious halo as I fall

And I add to the love story of

The couple that looks up against the light

And watches me fall

 

I am autumn, I am fall

For I am the leaf – brilliantly colored, even as it falls

You see my full glory as I fall

The couple that walks past the falling me

Oh so in love!

And I get tangled in her hair

To be lovingly brushed away by him

For I’m the leaf that adds to their story

 

I am autumn, I am fall

For even when I lay in the grass, waiting to be swept away

I add beauty to that all green grass

I add color to that mundane green grass

For I make way for what is to come

Another beautiful leaf – that will be autumn, that will be fall.
