An Autumn Leaf

 

I can sometimes see

A glow in my father’s face

It may be happiness he may have seen in me

Or it may be a light of pure tenderness, at his heart’s base

 

He watches us relish his generosity, smiling as he does

His heart is etched with ours, in joy and in grief

About how much he lost, he would never fuss

As if flailing lightly and facing an evergreen tree, he is an autumn leaf
