It is falling outside
it is bearing it all
it is taking time
to shed
the waking of the days gone by.

I will miss the shoulders
of the padded leaves
and the birds and bees
the fluttering branches on the trees
from the attempts of the hidden breeze.

How can I bring you in
from the space that decided to send you away
I don’t want you to leave
Is there space inside for me
to see and feel
and realize the time we had together
for I can’t let you go but I must.

“Hey everyone, let’s go make outside our inside”.
