Dear Fall


Dear FallDear Fall,

I don’t know where we went wrong. Why don’t you want to be with me? It’s like even when you’re here, you’re not really here. I miss you. I need to feel you near me. I miss waking up to your cool touch. Going on walks with you. Spending quality time with you. Making memories together. But this time apart is more than I can bear. It feels like you’d rather spend your time anywhere but here. Just when I think you might stick around, you’re gone by noon and I’m crushed by your leaving. We have something so special. Please tell me you’ll stay?

My friends in the north hate to see you coming. I don’t know why you’d choose to spend so much time up there, when no one appreciates you like I do. For them, you represent the slippery slope towards a long, dreary, depressing winter. But you’re so much more than that to me.  

You are my breath of fresh air. My first glimmer of hope. A sign of all the wonderful things to come, ushering in a beautiful future for us. You bring out the best in me. I am a better person when you’re around.  You are a calming influence in my life. I honestly don’t know how I couldn’t go on living here without you. 

I’m over Summer and all its cheap tricks. So predictable. So harsh and relentless. I mean, how much sunshine can a person really take? I’m so bored with the same thing day after day. I’m ready to pumpkin spice it up with you. I’m ready to snuggle and be cozy. Please don’t keep me waiting much longer. I need you in my life.


One Weary Mama
