fault in everything

it crept up on you
that cold autumn wind
it seemed like only yesterday
you were out on the lake
with the sun beating down
but now your reaching
for that old sweater
to keep you warm at night

always cursing
the season for changing
as you brush off
the fallen leaves
cluttering the driveway
soon it will be worse
with heavy snows
and frosty windows

but you always
have the summer
in your rear-view
constantly looking back
trying to forget the fact
that nothing lasts
forever long
not even that hit song

just take it in
those fading colours
let them settle you
even if they take the summer
lest you fall to the past
worried about things
that will never last
trust me dear, this goes too fast
