Hello October!

Oh, my beloved, October,
You’re a little too late this year.
You see, I’m already in December,
Withered, fallen, and icy cold.
A tiny spark ignited in me,
When you were about to begin,
But well, that gave me a wildfire,
Incinerating, my soul and my spirit.
Now I lay in my icy coffin,
With no sign of life within,
As I observe you from far away,
You, in all your orange glory,
Oh, my beloved, October,
Kiss me with your autumn leaves,
Bring me back with your magical touch,
Let me fall, once again.

        Happy October to you, too, Shreya! β€β€β˜ΊπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ˜˜ I hope the weather is treating you well where you are. When it is sunny, it is gorgeous here, but rain forecasted for the entire week. Fall here is so different from my hometown. β€πŸ’žπŸ’–

        I’m still managing, Shreya. The pain is sometimes there, but it comes and goes. The meds are helping. I am grateful it is not serious, according to the doc. Thank you for asking. You are really so sweet to remember. And you? Tell me that you are still smiling every day and I will smile with you. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜
