Is there anything like the beauty of Autumn?
The change of the leaves to glaring red and glowing yellow
The comfort of rain against the window
The subtle heat of a drink in your mitted hands
Or the breeze's gentle blow against you
The feeling of inner warmth not even the sun could dream of
In soul and spirit
Care and comfort
Autumn blesses the world in all its beauty.
A deadly thief
And a brutal teacher
One that waits round the corner
To break gentle creatures

A sad occurrence
But one that is needed
For without this killer
These creatures would be cheated

Unclear when it comes
And it does so unapologetically
This murderer of light
Follows us desperately

Let just one be happy
Let just one remain
A happy, unharmed creature
In this world we have today
Is it wrong to tell you how feel
When I know you're with someone else?
I could walk a mile with you on my mind
And it would feel like a minute
You say we can find a way
But what have we got left to say
We both know things will never change
We always end up staying the same
But I'm tired of this useless game
So let us have this last exchange
Then we can go our separate ways
I just want to feel that light again
Like a bird coursing through the sky
Fly, o' I'd fly through the night
Lifting my hands against the wind
And at the top of my lungs I'd sing

But I'm no bird
And I can't fly
But I can try my best to win this fight
Before I die
I'll take in this beautiful sight
Of the world and silence my mind
And now at least I can promise you
I won't cry tonight
I don't know who I would be without you
You have shaped who I am
While I may not be
A born leader
A fearless warrior
Or the most loving person on earth
I want to be
Because of you.
