Fading Picture on My Wall

Fading Picture on My Wall

written by: Ian Fletcher

 

Fading picture on my wall
Of leaves and trees in the Fall
Oh how once you inspired me
With your rich colors and hues
To believe the world was beautiful.

You spoke of life’s rich tapestry
Or so once it seemed to me
But now as I have grown old
Your colors, muted and subdued,
Whisper messages of oblivion
And the meaninglessness of it all.
