Lone Leaf

A lone leaf on the empty branch of a tree
Awaits the winds that would set him free

Free to join his friends down bellow
Free to be with the rest and go
Because with them by his side
The end would seem like a happy tide
A sympathetic wind blows
Carrying him along with its flow
Nearer to his friends he gets
Swaying in a heavenly rhythm he sets
Just then a gust of an angry wind makes it way
And blows the poor leaf far and away
Away from his home and friends
In the unknown he now awaits his end…
