My Dying Leaves

My dying leaves
the Autumn of my life
the Winter of what might have been

Maroon leaves crack and crumble in my hands,
dead before I touch them

I long for the place I cannot find,
the leaves know of not of this place I cannot find
Neither do I

Was it from the past or the future?
I cannot find it

The curtain may close before I get the chance
