Once a tall Tree

I’m a tree

A tall tree standing taller out of the rest of the forest

I’m strong, I hold it all up among the ground up

I’m tall and fine

Days go and nights stay by

I’m tall to hold it all but soon I’ll fall

I’ll fall to the ground

No longer tall to hold everything up

I’m a tall tree with life and will

But cut me down and I will fall

Leaves fall one by one

No longer shall I stand

No longer shall the will of life be among the things I hold

No more life, no more joy

Just something you used to enjoy

I was a tree
