As the breezy days go by,
I am quickly getting older and weaker
As the time flies.
I remember when I was oh so young,
I had so much fun.
Being a beautiful, bright green and all,
But now I know that we leaves must fall.
The other leaf has just danced its way down,
And CRUNCH! It is now gone.
It is lonely being the only one,
I see kids with their families while I am left with none.
Everyday is quite the same,
The wind would stop by
And we’d play a game.
The wind would whisper secrets, whistle, and tickle me,
But then it moves on to the other tree.
As I watch the wind and other leaf play,
I feel like a lonely stray.
The sun has just set and it is very dark.
I begin to doze off while watching the river flow through the park.
As I sleep I must hold on tight,
I may struggle while I try to fight, fight, fight!
The sun has risen and today’s a new day.
Oh, I think I may be just too old to play.
I have grown wiser and I now know,
That is time for me to let go.
I shut my eyes tight, and the next thing I know,
I am twirling down the tree, somewhat very slow.
As I gently hit the ground,
I did not cry, nor frown,
Because I know, that my new life will soon begin.
