Been there, done that. A beautiful lament.
I love the reminder of beauty once shared in the final stanza. What makes it hurt, makes it worth it.
For me, the gratitude mentioned in the last stanza is the needed first step for letting go and moving on. So much sadness here...Elizabethhttp://soulsmusic.wordpress.com/2013/07/20/grasshopper-dreams-v/
It must be Autumn now or has nature skipped a beautiful period?? But the bright side is that it will be Spring again!!
