A Day Like Any Other

Something shifted today

And I could feel it

Ever so slight

Like the way you can feel fall

Approaching

In the tint of the sunlight

Or a simple breeze

When warmer days

Are still close at hand

And I can feel myself falling

Like the autumn leaves

Away from you

Into the arms of someone new

And this heart feels torn

Between the wild

Unbound spirit of a stallion

And the well-trained

Companionship

Of man’s best friend

And both have their perks

And both have adventure

And safety

And danger

The warmth of an embrace

As it keeps you steady

Or draws you in

Like inhaling the smoke

From a summer campfire

Both burning

And warming

And taking you back

The scents surrounding you

But I don’t want the summer to end

I never have

Because I’ll never get it back

You can never get it back.

But isn’t this exactly

What the trees whisper to us

In their wisdom

Each year

As they show us how to die

And be reborn

Into something new?

And I will forever be

Something new

And this cycle

Shall never cease
