autumn is here to stay...

written by: Madhumita



the autumn is here

shall be with me forever

in the colours of the leaves

that the branch chucks away

the leaves that lie scattered

on the browning grass

the same that i collect

every morning

for keepsakes

for they carry the love of days past

a part of the life lived

soaked in the all the colours

of a romantic spring

still ignited

like the fiery summery passions

they carry my heart

and yours too

with all our love within

as we call out to each other

and hear our names

in their warm papery rustles

writing a lyrical epic

on the cold winter's chest
