Seasons of Love - Autumn Parting

It was time to part, though we were sad

To leave you in that god-forsaken place

Strewn about with random luggage.

We watched the lights of hope and fear

Pursue each other on your face

As you started on your big adventure.

When we walked around the lake

Its unruffled calm deceived us all

With thoughts that winter would be long delayed.

Autumn barely lit a spark of gold

Among the weary leaves of summer.

But we returned to our deserted house

To find our memories growing old;

Like cobwebs round your empty bed and chair.

While silent hours hung like heavy folds.

Autumn shadows sidle through the air,

The leafless twigs are decked with glistening tears,

And winter lurks outside our window panes.
