Falling (Again And Again)

The leaves drift

Like amber rain

In the glistering

Fallen to shadows

In the whispering

Shifting restless

In the eddies of time

Their efforts in vain

Their songs already sung

A melancholy refrain

Ephemeral beauty

Fleeting pain

Only the dust remains

I thought our paths

Were intertwined

But in the end

I was left behind

And in my heart

The leaves are falling

Again and again
