Leaves On A Tree. - Poem by Kevin East

I remember
When I had to leave her
I would cry.
And she would
Weep at the station
When she left me.
Two lovers
Closer than leaves on a tree.
Became strangers
Overnight.
Dying stars,
In the blue fading light.

She came
To meet me at the airport.
Said she wondered
How she'd get through.
I suffered myself
That week too.
Only true love will ache.
Hearts crack
Yet don't break.
Two lovers
Closer than leaves on a tree.
Became strangers
With Autumn's dawn.
Lost in the colours of its tapestry.
Yet
No one asks
For love to be born.

    Autumn has arrived! Leaves fall from the branches but the tree, still have many summers. With green leaves. (Report) Reply
