Autumn Trees

Oct 1998 Flying Stone

Oh, You work so much
to earn the living for Your family.
You haven't got the time
to live Your skills and learn what You wanted to.

But You love Your children and feel for them
and You're fighting for their life,
that they do not make the same mistakes
as You did when You were young.


See the golden leafs hangin' on the autumn trees.
Soon they will fall down
and You will step on them wondering why
they are happy even laying on the ground.

Oh, You think so much
about the people and about yourself.
You say that nothing but our feelings
can change the world and make a better one

But Your heart is split in two
because of feelings You cannot address.
And so You write Your poems
that give me strength or make me sad.

Oh, please don't give up!
Do never stop defending precious dreams.
Please take care of You!
Take care of all the people whom You love.

Oh, You're such'n exciting soul.
Deep and strong You hide Your pain.
But You do not hide Your thoughts.
We talk and never waste our time.
