Winds of Change Started Blowing

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

when-you-say-goodbye-to-love

The winds of change,
started blowing,
we were still doing,
our summer dance.
Still running through flowery meadows,
walking along rosy paths.
You felt the wind grow colder,
you turned to see where it came from.
Seeing the approaching of autumn,
you decided it was enough of summer fun.
As you walked away,
I reached out my hand,
wanted you to take it and stay -
but you just continued on your way.
When you left me behind,
you had forged that river,
I could not follow you.
Roses were still on the vine,
while raindrops made them cry,
as I sadly sighed.
The autumn brought just memories,
no more dancing with the breeze,
the colorful leaves came swirling by,
but all I saw were shades of gray
and a lonely path through the wintertime.

Thank you, Ann. Yes, I knew that about The Monkees but then they proved their talent in music and singing and that was great. You too, keep safe

Beautiful as always, my friend. I scoffed at the Monkeys when they were formed as a band. Then I heard their music and I was sold.

Ann Carr from SW England on December 04, 2020:

Such sadness and melancholy. You've cleverly woven your poetry around the seasons and portrayed the heartache of a loved one leaving.

Love The Monkeys! Did you know they were a group formed solely for a television series?

Keep safe and well.

Ann

A lovely poem, Rasma. I liked the song by The Monkeys too.
