Green turns to red
To orange, yellow, and brown
Summer turns to fall.
It’s my favorite time. With you.
It’s time the air turns cold
Cool and crisp
Dead leaves crunch under my boots
A lot of things are more fun in fall. With you.
Would be more fun. Would be with you.
We will go on adventures
Walk through colorful trees
Drink good coffee and bake chocolate cakes
I’ll pretend to be cold so I can wear your sweater
It smells better than autumn, the leaves, the fresh air, the backyard fires
You don’t understand what you do to me
I could say it forever
Let’s do something we’ll remember every year
And when October 31st comes
We’ll turn all the lights out so it looks like we’re not home
We’ll build a fort in the living room
We’ll have one flashlight
And lots of love
If you were actually here
If you were actually mine
The season has many lessons to teach
I have many lessons to learn
It seems painful
But it is beautiful
It’s red and orange and yellow and brown
