As Autumn Comes

A Garret Poet

As Autumn Comes
Form: Ballad

As time goes by the seasons change
The steady beat of getting old
As years move in their groups of four
Yet for me autumn is now bold

My spring has gone with yesterday
But I don’t desire to go back
I knew nothing of anything
Ideals of youth lost on the track

Then summer and falling in love
Times with you I would go back to
As the missing goes on too long
As time changes, I still love you

And now as my autumn begins
All I want is to hold your hand
We were growing old together
At least that’s how we had it planned

So as the autumn leaves now fall
Each day draws me higher above
And I welcome this slowing down
Until I am with you, my love
