As Autumn Fades

20171024_161906

As autumn fades, we remember

special meals,

the warmth of smiles,

passing the mashed potatoes 

and at sunset – blankets,

and popcorn on the couch

with a good movie.

The Softness of the Golden Sun

cropped-20161015_131559.jpg

In the softness of the golden sun memories sway, flickering

through our hearts,

thoughts of younger love,

of you and I

our boots swishing through the leaves,

holding hands

with gloves on,

and drawing you close,

smiling

in our autumn jackets.

My Love, do you remember

that day in the park?

      

Note: The park is where I asked her to marry me. We’ve always spent alot of time in parks.
