Your Love (Perhaps

your love (perhaps
no love can) could
not last through
(cold mornings)
the winter (fall).
the last gesture
of your love
(after all)
was a fallen leaf,
which you found lying
(dead) on the ground
and placed in
my heart (your eyes
dark) with a
trembling hand.

love (softly) so easily
given can (fading)
so easily turn away.
