Soon Enough

a leaf has turned from green to gold and red,
hanging halfway between alive and dead,
she saved her brightest colors for the end,
she’ll join the rest soon enough…

I know that you’re afraid of what’s to come,
I know, because you’re not the only one/you tell me when I’m home
but today might be as perfect as we’ll get,
if not quite yet, then…
+++ soon enough, the sun will set,
+++ the night will fall, we’ll take our rest,
+++ we haven’t read the ending yet, but soon enough.

pressed between the pages of a book,
is a love I tried to save, that never took,
wax paper to preserve my best intent,
that’s how it went, but…
+++ soon enough, the sun will set,
+++ the night will fall, we’ll take our rest,
+++ we haven’t read the ending yet, but soon enough.
+++ soon enough, the light will dim,
+++ until the sun comes round again,
+++ and every song becomes a hymn, soon enough.
