I was a leaf.
A leaf so green and full of life.
I grew on a tree.
A tree so tall, it felt like one day I would touch the sky.
I was a happy leaf.
A leaf so happy, I played to the tune of the winds.
This way, that way, whichever way.
Oh joy untold, it felt like I was high up in the sky.
You were the sun.
A sun so bright, you would bring light into me.
Oh how you shone! Oh how the light fell on me!
A light so warm, I wanted to shout it out loud to the sky.
You were a scorching sun.
A sun so hot, you drained the water out of me.
Oh how you burned and left me with scars.
Scars so yellow, I longed for water from clouds in the sky.
I was a weak leaf.
A leaf so weak, I tumbled when the winds blew.
Oh how I tumbled, rumbled and stumbled on the ground.
A ground so low, I could no longer touch the sky.
There was a wind.
A wind so strong, it blew me off the ground.
Oh how it blew! Whish whoosh, and flew me up in the air.
Now I am a leaf, a leaf flying high up in the sky.
