no matter

the leaves are holding tightly
to their late summer green
working so hard
to find a few more moments of sunshine
before the twilight overwhelms them
with a cold to their core

and i wonder if my grip on our love
is holding off the seasons
or if the beauty of you and i
is in our life through them

whichever is true
i intend to know you well
no matter the time of year
