Floating Aloof...

I am like a leaf
Floating aloof…
Going where the breeze takes me.

I am shed from the tree,
Heaven up above…
Picked up by the breeze of life
Sometimes I fly high
On wings of happiness
Sometimes I crash
With the burden of pain.

I am like a leaf
Lying on the ground
When there is no breeze to carry me.

I am stamped upon
Crushed and humiliated
Worn out like a dried leaf
Waiting for the breeze to carry me again…
Take me with it
Let me float and settle
As I reach my final abode.
