Change is coming

The leaves are changing

The wind is biting

And my heart feels empty

There is an ache in my chest

That does not come from the cold

A sadness in my step

That does not come from the graying sky

Am I depressed?

Or is there some transformation taking place?

I feel alone under the dismal sky

And the dreary rain washes me away

I am past the pain now

I feel nothing besides sorrow and lonliness

What is happening?

Change must be coming

Otherwise I fear I will fade away

Please, let change be coming.
