seasons change

Seasons changed,
The leaves fell and fresh ones took their place,
And still I miss you as though you left yesterday.
It’s been long, too long; I still follow you down this path,
Trying to make sense of why,
But there’s a beauty in not understanding,
Not knowing,
Because I will never have to admit you left willingly,
That you chose something else, something that wasn’t me,
And that you found happiness in the arms of someone else,
I deluded myself, thinking our forever meant just the two of us,
But the seasons change, consistent and pushing me through life,
And I wish I didn’t look for your face in the crowd still,
That I wasn’t wishing on every shooting star in the summer sky
Or every fallen crunched leaf on the curb,
That you would find your way back to me…
