Picture taken in Orillia, ON. Fall 2005.
There is something so beautiful about the sky in late October/early November. Red, deep orange, with rays of yellow... As if it's on fire. Breathtaking. So one evening I got really inspired and wrote this song.
I photographed him with my mind,
So his face won't fade away.
I wrote down each word he said,
So I won't lose a piece.
I pretended not to hear
Him saying goodbye to me,
So I could be part of my dream
For a bit longer.
I can get so insecured
Though I will not admit.
I remember the day
I saw him walk away.
As I am watching the leaves turning red,
I can feel the fire of this October day.
Its orange colour
Makes me feel stronger
And I can face my pain.
October sky, will you tell me what to think?
October sky, will you help me find the words?
