October Memories

October’s here, the air is bright,
The leaves decked out in fancy dress,
The clouds in shapes of animals
Hang in the sky so blue.
This was our time of year, your favorite.
How many times did you come in,
Cheeks glowing, eyes sparkling,
Smelling of the leaves you jumped through
As a child and even after you grew up.
How many times did you say
“Just smell, just feel the air.
I love it, crisp,
With a hint of winter coming.”
Our time, but now only my time.
Time to dream dreams that won’t be.
Time to wish wishes that can’t come true,
Time to remember & treasure each day we had together.
Time for October’s memories.
