this passage-way radiates with beauty and it's richness and color has come from all that it has lived through. it holds silent conversations of past days and it embodies all that it has come to know.
this bench has witnessed many human moments; nervous first i love you's, talk of the good old days, kisses, good-byes, loneliness, despair and has heard the cries and laughter of family and friends. so many people have sat on this bench in search of peace and quiet and maybe all they found was a vision of a leave falling gracefully to its destiny but the reward in itself was allowing the mind to be set free. this bench has many stories to tell and all you have to do is silence your thoughts and close your eyes for it to be felt.
the trees, the sky, the leaves, this little piece of earth has been touched by love and sadness and just like anything once filled with energy, it feels lonely when someone leaves. the loneliness gets deeper with each departure, as deep as the hole that happiness carved in.
the final steps away from this lovely terrain is sad because you don't know when you'll return but the wind softly plays music with the leaves and this soothes the senses and you can feel it's presence in your hair, your face, your skin and the mind gets swept away one last time.
our spirits still linger there.
