Autumn Song
(Dedicated to Grandpa Hazlett, with much love and many precious memories.)

Sun cascades across scattered leaves
Like a smile shining from up above
Illuminating the changes set in motion
A new season sets in and life moves on

And I pause to hear the song of autumn
Brilliant notes resound like never before
Wind whispers the secret my heart knows
You have arrived at heaven's gate at last

I find myself smiling toward the sunshine
Grateful for the promises of a better place
Where days are filled with the golden light
Of renewal and eternal peace everlasting

And I can almost hear the angels rejoicing
When you and Grandma are united again
Love fills the air and I breathe in the moment
As the leaves rain down from autumn trees

Today my choice is to celebrate your life
Through my tears I can picture your smile
Hear your laughter in the rustling fall breeze
Every song of autumn ever whispering to me
You will forever be in my heart and memory
