Autumn Day

David Gans

Her name was Autumn Day
She took my breath away
Red hair and jack-o-lantern smile
Her beauty was unique
Her laughter made me weak
She thought she’d stay with me a while

Though she was born to run
She said I was the one
Her love was bold in its insistence
She had a dancer’s lines
Up close she looked so fine
But there were storm clouds in her distance

Her name was Autumn Day
She came but could not stay

Some evenings she would walk
Out where the spirits talk
And she would listen for their song
I don’t know what she heard
She could not find the words
But I could feel something was wrong

I saw the lightning in her eye
I saw the moon go sailing by
I saw the oceans all run dry
And then the rain…

Now here I am, alone
Chilled to my every bone
Warm summer sunshine cannot reach me
Cold winds blow through my heart
My new life will not start
Cold winds blow through my heart
My new life will not start

Her name was Autumn Day
She came but could not stay
