I am fading by Hennie van Geel 2014

I am fading

the Autumn brings me home

turning inwards

to the dreams of yesteryear

when every morning

was a miracle

every evening

was an adventure

and every dream

was a gods-given message


I am fading

the earthy smell of dew

just before the first-Sun

the last drops of rain

after a thunderstorm

the wind carrying

the salty taste

of the faraway sea

they don’t come to me anymore
