Amidst the falling leaves, she pirouetted. How someone could be so full of life, when all about her faded, astounded me? But, maybe, that was her secret? She shone through the decay. An earthbound moonbeam, cleaving aside all that it was to be mortal, I watched her in her joy. She exuded a summer gone and the promise of others to come.
I did not know how long our love would last, all was so new, but whilst she was in my world, I would be a better man. That had to be worth something? It was all I had.
