An Autumn Lament

I see you my wee friend
floating amongst curled leaves
upon autumns’ water,
your skin so dark
from the murkiness
of a leave filled pond.
Those leaves will remain
to protect you and your kin
over the coming winter
for the Almanac forecasts
a long and cold season.
I see the glint
in your blackened eyes
staring back at me,
your approaching hibernation
as I surely am.
This warm sunny day
reminds me of summer
while I watched you and your family
be yourselves
filling this heart with happiness
knowing I had created
a safe haven,
a haven for you and for me
where I could forget
the worries and strife of live
and relish in the moment.
Those moments are now
locked in my mind
only to resurface with smiles
when the deadness of winter
knocks on the door.
As I watch your eyes slowly close
while you fight the season,
remember this my wee friend
I shall unearth you in spring
tenderly wipe sand, mouldy leaves
off you and your kin
and we will once again
rejoice in the happiness
we gave each other.

Sleep well my wee friend.
