Unfallen Leaf


"You are unforgettable!"


I wanted to be remembered

but the ribbon of hope

that binded my strength

seemed to be unstrung

and falling out of place

falling down, down, down.


I was weightless as could be

weighted down as I waited around-

just another leaf on the tree.

Unforgettable like the memories we see

as autumn sheds off all she used to be.


A pile of comfort 

fallen like the many other leaves,

a children's playground, relishing with excitement

as another falls to the scene.


And then there was me

all eyes can see

the last unfallen leaf

wondering, If I keep holding on

will I ever be  free?
