of Our Lives
Crisp bright days
illumine fall colors
Brilliant gold mixed with a tinge of rust
Days of rain laden
Sadness at the loss of dear friends departed
All these aspects of the October of our lives
Not yet November with its darkness
December’s long night of the soul
The end of our days
Those golden moments
Of playing with the grandchildren
Reunions with old friends
