The Autumn leaves fall to the ground
Loss of a best friend, makes a silent rue
Deep sadness imbues a crushed leafy mound
A lonely heart aches, padded footsteps overdue.
A mans time to cry as winter sheds its mist
If only, If only one more day of summer, I miss
Let the leaves and the mist fall wistful and crisp
And may the kindle of Spring find you a home
For your heart to blossom and footsteps to roam
With that twinkle in your eye and skip in your step.
The fond memories of a best friend, evermore to be kept.
