On the day I met you, I smiled,
And when you smiled back,
My feet flew a few inches above the ground
On the walk home.
Now I ain’t tall,
But I sure as shit felt taller that day,
And for the brief few seconds
We walked the same way,
I was sure I was onto something,
A change of days and ways in the autumn.
Though, like the autumn, you changed and left
With the leaves.
