Autumn Gold

and you are brilliant autumn gold
splashed through seas of summer bold
dripped amber eyes tell tales of old
a life full of secrets never told

and you are spring thaw, twofold
forget-me-not and dusty gold
sunshine for an eternal soul
a pure warmth, something completely whole

and i am winter, fraught and cold
a nothing-mix you can’t remould
but you, you still stay autumn gold
with secrets that you’ve never told

and though i’m painted icy blue
just maybe you could thaw me, too
