Autumn Days

She still remembers those days
ochre rays filtering
through gaunt autumn trees
casting patterns on the path
they trod together.

Days of promise, days of hope
leaves drifting downwards
crunching underfoot
creating crimson carpets
for them to follow.

And as long years drifted by
like autumn leaves falling
although far apart
treading different paths
they walk together.
