Purple Lilac (The First Emotions of Love)

Lost in the constant motion of leaves as I watch them fall to the Earth in the most dignified way Not too fast and with full confidence They know how this is going to end They accept it with the poise of a princess They know when one of the needles touches It will be rough They will be stepped on They will be torn and shredded Some will get lucky and pressed in a book While most will be pressed in the pavement They don't know the outcome of their fall All they know is how to fall and they trust the process Glancing over I see you Gently picking a leaf up and letting it fall Maybe I will follow in its path too
