He Gives me Stars

by Maple Tree   Feb 14, 2016


I've scraped surfaces
of what needs to be
written, fingernails
bleed a bit more
each day.

It's a heavy burden
to dwell about poems
that scattered within
a fall moon sky.

October fell upon its knees
begging for forgiveness,
the day my love became
ill.

Our leaves froze early that year-

To watch the other half of my soul
wither like a a slow, decayed tree,
it's hard for me to forgive Autumn.

I watch him suffer
as my smile begins to fade.

Before Chemo; He reminisces.

He's losing his fire,
the sparkle in his eyes
start to fade.

I no longer see stars
within his soul, because he gives
them away-

He gives them to me
so that I can be strong for both of us....
