Autumn

The autumn of your life 

Has a beauty of its own

Etched upon your face

Experience, enjoyment, fun

And just like the Autumn season

As leaves turn brown and gold

Youthfulness may have gone

But that’s no reason 

For you to feel so old

Just remember that your life

Is yours and yours alone

Your body it may whither 

It might even fail

And your complexion –

It may even turn – 

A lighter shade of pale

But think of all the Springs

That the future promises you

And don’t look in a mirror

Keep happiness in mind

And you’ll have many Autumns

Just like nature –

You’ll survive
