I’m Counting On Autumn
( Written on 09-11-01 )

With clouds of delusions
it all seems surreal
the motive, the meaning
the way that I feel
with God’s giant thumb
pushing down on my head
there’s no place for comfort
my fears have been fed…

I’m counting on autumn
to even the score
the tree’s gentle colors
the smell at the shore
the chill in the air
as it fills up my soul
I’m counting on autumn
to make it all whole

I’ve never imagined
a moment like this
where love and where laughter
were snatched from our midst
the tears and the anger
where life should abound
the heartache of millions
and nary, a sound…

I’m counting on autumn
to reclaim the night
and settle with heaven
the reasons to fight
I’m angry and tired
of feeling this way
I’m counting on autumn
to take it away….

I’m counting on autumn
to teach me to pray….
