a different autumn

she gave him a different autumn, 
he gave her a special hill 
on which they would be united, 
with i can i do i will 

she gave him a loving daughter, 
he gave her his very best; 
days enrapt in forest splendor, 
sunset sinking in the west 

now she lies in shrouded silence 
he stands looking at their lands --  
she gave him a different autumn 
and he hopes, 
he hopes 

she understands
