the autumn of my heart,
it arrived and left,
and the leaves of my love
tumbled off of the tree.
the sky turned dark gray
i must had thought it was over,
the cold winter had come so
i searched for a four leaf clover.
i waited and waited,
watching the clock.
it must had been days
since the leaves had come off.
the snow was piling, and the
days were growing shorter.
i looked for inspiration,
maybe a lucky quarter?
soon i had found flowers
and hope in your smile,
and as your twinkling gaze
looked straight my way,
the familiar old spring
butterflies had arrived.
i can see now, the bright
summer days, coming soon
and i knew straight away
that it was because of you.
