Looking for Love to Return

Looking toward Autumn …

Looking toward the autumn,

I wondered where you were,

you had promised to return,

before the autumn leaves,

began to fall.

The shadows are growing long

and the summer is drawing to a close,

but I have had no answer to my call.

The flowers you gave me,

with love from the heart,

have long since wilted

and every summer song –

has clouded my eyes with tear.

The letters you sent,

when summer was new,

are now yellow and faded –

tied with a ribbon of blue.

I wonder if you met a summer love,

who decided to stay forever,

these thoughts are so jumbled,

I wonder if you still love me,

like you did –

when you said good-bye in June.

I will wait for you

and hope that it will be soon,

before the north winds,

blow in the slivery snowflakes,

because I know your love,

will keep me close and warm,

if my thoughts to you can fly.

I hope they whisper,

that my love is true,

so if the autumn sets in

and you haven’t come back,

in the winter,

my heart will have frozen

and it will take your passionate kisses,

to melt it again.
