Love remains

By Carla Romarate-Knipel

Fiery tree ablaze –
red-orange leaves entrancing
my sorrowful eyes…

walking away, sad –
looking up the clear blue skies
longing to see you…

this beautiful day –
reaching out to embrace me
as I sit alone.

you are in the warmth
of the sun, shining brightly
on my tear-stained cheeks.

the cool, gentle breeze
touches my face, dries sadness –
leaving only love.
