One More Step

Where once we dreamt
we dream no more
and all the open doors
are slowly closed
while a feeling, hard to pose
descends

and a chill of autumn wind
sends a shiver up the spine
in remembrance of the cold of winter storms
as I wonder how I will keep warm
in the changing cyclic tides
that always override
a summer's love

Is this love strong enough to last
through the cold of north wind's blast
or will it only prove to be
yet one more step into eternity…?
