For Tricia:

I saw a leaf carried on the wind, swirling skywards,

I blinked and it was gone, moments undone in a flash,

Life was easy when we were young, but the wind blew

Carried leaves aloft, see they float away,

Dreams of living gone, floating ever upwards,

Tears they streamed as hearts broke in misunderstanding,

For in another world leaves fell from the sky,

All stopped to watch them land upon the ground
