Candy coated trees shine bright in the afternoon sun. A crisp autumn breeze tickles my skin and blows my hair across my face. If only I could freeze time forever. If only I could keep the seasons the same and stand here forever with him beside me. But I know that soon frost will chill the leaves and they will fall faster than I can blink. One second I will be standing in a forest of color, the next I will be buried by the dead and dried leaves. But even the impending doom can't stop me from enjoying this moment. My hand reaches down to touch his beside me. Our fingers intertwine and I'm afraid that my next breath will never escape my throat. Somehow the leaves are my emotions and the breeze is my heart and I can't stop it beating no matter how hard I try. Slowly, my head bends in the breeze and my shoulders slump until I am relaxed with my shoulder on his head. If only we could stay like this forever. But the leaves keep floating onward, higher and higher until they are gone.
