Poetry Thursday #13

Done my placement as of tomorrow – so I should definitely start having more time to write more.  Yay!  Anyways, wanted to post these before I forgot and went to bed.  Hope you enjoy them! 

A Short Goodbye
The journey’s end is drawing near -
soon I shall have my rest.
My heart will stop beneath my breast
and this person here shall disappear. 

I am gone – do not follow.
Wipe the sorrow from your face;
let go of my cold embrace.
Things will feel better tomorrow.

Autumn’s Lament
Leaves change from green to brown,
slowly falling further down
until their resting place is found -
decomposing on the ground. 

As a chill reaches the winter air -
forgetting that the dead are there
snow covers their resting place,
until winter finds itself replaced. 

Spring prances with unbridled glee -
giving life back to the trees;
the young forget their fallen friends
until the spring comes to an end. 

Summer shows the leaves all grown -
the buds have fallen; the birds have flown.
Heat fades and leaves begin to fear -
as autumn draws ever near. 

Summer ends and turns to fall -
the living hear the Reaper’s call.
The leaves cannot escape their fate,
for their silent, slow demise they wait.
