The Mystery Of Life...

As Winter slowly approaches
And the crisp morning air touches my cheek
I wonder about tomorrow
So many unanswered questions
An endless circle of confusion
like a broken record milling through my head
I watch as new life forms
a promise of a new beginning
And I dream of a perfect day
Anticipation in wild abandon
My heart beating loudly in my ears
A love so sacred and real
I stand in awe of my transformation
My mind in turmoil
Barely breathing
Wondering what all this means
For in the quiet of twilight
Golden memories and wasted years
I see it clearly
I taste the saltiness of tears
The mystery of life
A new season of unknown fears
A new me
And with the Winter breeze
What will blow this way for me?

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
