The Darkness Comes Earlier

The darkness comes earlier
Each year and the ghosts
Have already started whispering
– even though it isn’t October yet

But I know that this time
– Even though the rain still
Unlocks forgotten doors and
Resurrects buried memories –
I have you.

Perhaps October won’t be that dark
After all.
