October Rain

from by Robin Jackson



October Rain

The rain pulls me awake
on this warm Autumn morning
the melancholy sky of grey 
comforts like a cave
You didn't stay last night 
and maybe that's the right thing
And letting go is truly for the brave
Many times I tried 
to pick up the pieces 
of this broken moon we left hanging in the sky
I have no illusions 
Only disappointments 
There's only so much you can do
until it's time to say goodbye
say goodbye...
October rain
the bitter knowing change 
So let's make love before the snows fall from the sky
we saw sunrise and both felt the pain
now let it wash away October rain
As the cold wind blows us 
through this narrow winter
And the fallen leaves of what we hoped for
lay upon the ground
I hope you will remember 
the beauty of the summer
when I found you in the garden
your brown hair hanging down
Sometimes love is wary
and hides within the fallows
and slips into the darkness
like a moon upon the wane
but you still found the way 
through the tangled weeds and brambles
So I will always think of you
in the autumn when it rains
