   In the Autumn of My Life
The days and nights were so lonely in the autumn of my life.
I thought it was too late for love again, or a new wife.
But, one bright day in September, when the colorful autumn leaves
begin to fall a new love came to me in the Autumn of my life.
Here face glowed with love and happiness, her eyes were a beautiful
crystal blue  and her lips were full and so inviting too.
She was young at heart and her smile was warm as  summer rain.
We fell in love in the Autumn of our lives and soon married and many said,
“it won’t last long” that was almost ten years ago and we are more in love than ever,
in the Autumn of our lives.    
She came to me in the Autumn of my life and brought me happiness and I’m so thankful
for her love, here in the autumn of my life as the colorful leaves once again fall!
I will love her long as long as the Autumn leaves turn in the fall.
Her name is Wanda Lee and she’s been a blessing to me, in the Autumn of my life!
