Got your photograph but it don't kiss back

Visit Mr.Knowitall to post your own Friday Flash 55 word story or poem!

The autumn leaves
changed colours
but you were springMan and Baby
with its hopes
not a misty regret
of winter
by a log fire

Looking back
I still dream
although summer
with gentle walks
along green riverbanks
picking wild flowers
never came
but you gave our child
her own seasons
as I wait
for you
