Is Your Favorite Season Still Fall? by Emily Bebenek - photo by Sonja Lippmann

Is your favorite season still fall?
I saw you watch the leaves tumble down.
Fiery reds, oranges, and yellows
That reminded you of the stars you used to love.

Is your favorite season still fall?
I remember how we used to laugh and cry.
Never caring that the world moved on without us
Because we were happy just living in the moment.

Is your favorite season still fall?
I never understood why you pushed me away.
Trying everything to help you
But you relied only on yourself.

Is your favorite season still fall?
I cried at your mother’s funeral while you stood frozen in time.
The grief overcoming you to the point
That you no longer felt anything at all.

Is your favorite season still fall?
I started and stopped loving you so many times.
Stuck in a cycle of love and heartbreak
Which crushed our friendship and left us as strangers.

Is your favorite season still fall?
I ask because we have both changed.
And now that you face me after all these years
I no longer know who you are.
