Loss of Love

The trees are turning colors
a little early this year
and oh, how I don't want them to
but then
when you got on that plane
my heart broke in two
and that didn't matter either

I've been told to ask
for what I want and need
yet it never seems to matter
for the more I ask
the less I receive
and don't you see?
Love must come free
of expectation

as the leaves turn colors
when they must
No questions why
just one more sigh
and the tears
that loss of love will bring
