Autumn Leaf

To look at
the last autumn leaf
clinging.

Oh! to look at it,
its pain
its grief.

But aren't our dreams,
like a leaf too.
adhering to the tree
called hope.

Holding to it
in the winds
of adversity
seasons of loss.

But dreams
like hopes,
like leaves
relieve themselves
reappear.

They smile once more,
be green again
when the seasons come.

Do not be saddened
if the dreams of your
died an untimely death,

As the autumn goes
the leaf re-grows.

After autumn comes the crispness of winter ,and soon new buds appear in spring .Life is like that too we close old chapters take time to create new and then reopen new chapters.
