“A Leaf That Fell”

A Leaf that fell

So soft to touch

Laid out to photograph

From Garden picked

Yesterday, a sunny day

Now I look at leaf, so sad

Some leaves crinkled

Do not touch

They will fall apart

Like Life

One day all is fine

The next all gone

Not the same

We must be strong

Why we ask

Let tears fall


Those days so fine

So full of Love

Memories of which

Can never be taken away

Like the leaf its day done

But pressed in a book to immortalize

Remember the day

Photographs taken to recall

That day the leaves did fall
