Autumn Leaves

Words By
Johnny Mercer

The Falling Leaves Drift By My Window
The Autumn Leaves Of Red And Gold
I See Your Lips The Summer Kisses
The Sun-Burned Hands I Used To Hold
Since You Went Away The Days Grow Long
And Soon I'll Hear Old Winter's Song
But I Miss You Most Of All My Darling
When Autumn Leaves Start To Fall

Happiness Is A Journey Not A Destination



Gently Falling Autumn Leaves
For Bobbie And Rascal

There Comes A Time
When The Summer Days Grow Shorter
The Seasons Start To Change
And The Autumn Leaves Start To Fall

Seasons May Come And Seasons May Go
Yet We Do Not Live ForEver
The Time That God Has Given To Us Is Fleeting
Look All Around You Open Your Eyes And See
See The Wonderment Falling From The Sky
And Enjoy The Beauty Of The Gently Falling Autumn Leaves

As We Walk Through The Rustling Piles Of Autumn Leaves
I Gently Touch Your Face And Realize Just How Lucky That I Am
As The Gently Falling Autumn Leaves Kiss Against Your Face
A Tear Softly Trails Down My Cheek

I Must Be The Luckiest Person On Mother Earth
From My Teary Eyes I Can Still See All Of God's Beauty
And It Is Right Beside Me
For I Have You And Rascal To Enjoy The Beauty Of Mother Nature
And The Gently Falling Autumn Leaves

A Crisp Smell Of A New Beginning Of Another Winter Is In The Air
But I Know That You And I Will Always Be Here
Always In Spirit, Together As Three, A Family
Walking As One Holding Hands And Dreaming Wonderful Dreams
Enjoying Life And Watching The Gently Falling Autumn Leaves

Bobbie's Poem
Subtle Changes

I Came From California, To Be With You Here
Never Before In All My Years
Had I Watched the Seasons Change
Spring, Summer, Fall And Winter
Marked By Subtle Changes

Never Knowing The Gift Of Seasons
The Gift That Each Season Brings
Until I Met You Rick, I Missed Many Things
It Wasn't Money, Diamonds Or Gold That I Wanted

I Wanted Earth Beneath My Feet
I Wanted Blue Skies And Rainy Days
I Wanted Flowers And Birds In The Trees
I Wanted Things I'd Never Seen

I Wanted To Rake Leaves In The Fall
I Wanted To Watch The Snowflakes And Marvel At Them All
I Wanted To Watch The Plants Come Alive In Spring
I Wanted The Simple Wonderous Things

You And Rascal Gave Me Those Things When I Came To You
You And Rascal Gave Me Time To Watch In Awe
As Winter, Then Spring And Then Summer Turns To Fall
I Smile And Think How Great Life Is

Never Did I Think I Could Feel What I Do
To Be Lucky Enough To Have Rascal And You
Two Who Do Not Laugh When I Stare At A SnowFlake Or A Falling Leaf
Two Who Like Me See The Beauty Beneath
The Gently Falling Autumn Leaves
