A Leaf In The Wind

Picked up and carried away 
Swirling in the air
A leaf in the wind
Not knowing how she will fare
Will she land on water
Be gently carried away
Bask in the sunshine
Peacefully spend her day
Or will she land in a thicket
Be torn and pulled apart
She has landed there before
The scars a part of her heart
She’s waiting for a strong wind
To hold her in the air
With a gentle side
To keep her calm up there
All the time she will be looking
For a safe place to land
So if you have a gentle soul
Please hold out your hand
Her final destination
Might just be your heart
Close your hand and she might be
A leaf in the wind that falls apart
