The Autumn of Life

In the autumn of life
just when all seems over
as if the best
could only live in memory

a ray of light
from somewhere up above
like a glittering arrow
finds two hearts
in a single stroke

what magic
still lies
within the gods
of ancient past

to create a future
based on the love
of all that came before

and the wind
gently speaks
as it moves through the leaves
of our lives

all we ever have is now
