It was just another autumn afternoon
But it felt like a day that passed me so soon
Walking among the trees, I felt
I had returned back to the past that had melt.
Chirping of the birds was like a familiar sound
Brought back the memories that could never be found
The sunlight peeping through the leaves shaded
Brought back the face that had faded.
Every corner was bringing back something
A distant memory of the one who left with everything
I could feel a lace of tears
Making me remember all fears.
Years had passed but the wound was not healed
All those thoughts came back as I kneeled
I picked a leaf which was on the land
And held it as if it was her hand
It slipped off between my fingers
And twirled in the air as it lingers
I hummed her last song
But I knew she was long gone.
She was a girl of different kind
And was stuck in my mind
Now I recalled it wasn’t just another autumn afternoon
But the day that left me so soon.
