I See Her Dancing Gaily - Poem by Gert Strydom

I see her dancing gaily
swirling the leaves outside
as if her spirit would forever be young
and although the autumn of my years
is all ready leaving its marks
I am still strong in body and spirit
and now a more mature man.

I see time creeping
into the corners of my body
and ever slowly chiselling
the features of who, I am

but still she embraces me
as if she's part of the divine
with the knowledge of her ways
as if the entire world is mine
and yet sometimes I am cold
from her breath kissing my cheeks
and I realize
that I am turning old.
