Where there were once two…only one remains, yet a new spring brings the PROMISE

Autumn Leaves



I looked today at the sleeping autumn trees, and I saw me.
I watched the withering, clinging leaves which are soon to be free.
I watched as one broke loose on the gentle, silent push of the wind.
I watched it as through the broken rays of light to the earth it did spin.


I thought of life, and the many cycles that just living does to it bring.

I felt the solitude of that brief moment, and in the fading light I did weep.

I think of the verse in Ecclesiastes 3:1


“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”.


So, pray tell, what shall be this purpose be, into that I in which I am born?

Do these words carry hope, or will they be misconstrue d and sing the song of forlorn?

I know not the answer, yet I pray still for peace…not so much for me, but others.


Thus Lord, let it be unto thy will, and cast aside my cries, and let YOUR peace reign forevermore.

For I am like unto the leaves of autumn; I shine briefly and bright beneath YOUR light.

Yet I shall too someday turn lose, and spin to the earth with the knowledge that the heart will go on…yes, the heart born of love shall go on.

Allen, I don't have any words to express how beautiful this is. That's kind of strange coming from another author- but true.This is just uncredible! Thank you.

With Love,
