Poetry Corner – SAD Song

25 Sep

SAD* song

 

The morning and my mood keep getting darker by the day

Grey skies weighing heavy on my heart

Wrapping up in layers just to keep the cold at bay

And hoping for the autumn sun to force the clouds to part

 

This season’s charms are no less than the others

But somehow they are often lost on me

I force myself to raise my glance, to drink the colors in

‘Cause if I don’t I’ll soon succumb to the law of gravity

 

Autumn always finds me falling deep into despair

I need your light, your shelter from the storm

And when you’re gone I can’t go on, my world just falls apart

Stay with me, lay with me and keep this body warm

 

Remind me of the times we’ve felt the sunshine

The heat so strong we scrambled for the shade

Tropical vacations are just dreams to me right now

If I could bring that feeling back I’d have it made

 

Tell me of the good times that are coming

Help me build a bridge that takes me to good times to be

Give me strength to last until the solstice bottoms out

And sunshine starts to fill the day again, I want to see

 

It’s just Autumn that always finds me falling deep into despair

I need your light, your shelter from the storm

And when you’re gone I can’t go on, my world just falls apart

Stay with me, lay with me and keep this body warm
