A Single Tree

Lurking, reaching, twirling your calling. 
Shaking, waving saw you smiling.
Look so happy, you look so strong.
Stand up tall, then sang a beautiful song.

The wind was blowing north to south.
Staring at you as i sat on a couch.
Gentle and grace you danced like swan.
Like ballet dancer, what a man!

Felt so envy I closed my eyes.
Dreaming of something, can't think twice.
Flew in the air up above the sky.
Like nobody can, i felt so high.

Swinging and swirling up and down.
Aren't you get tired? I really frown.
Can't you stop? I'm resting here!
Open your eyes, do you care?

One evening, you said to me.
The Lord has spoken he whispered gently.
The time has come, it's time to go.
Are you coming with me? But i said, no!

That day you said, i went away.
Your tears were fallen, looked so astray.
Did not look back,  as i left. 
I am nothing... but like a wanted theft.

Days had passed, all were empty.
All were sadness and loneliness in me.
Can't forget a friend who gave me home.
I have to go back, i'll never be alone.

Excited and overjoyed, i rushed.
Far from a distance, i crashed.
Can't see you clearly, you were not there.
Oh my dear friend, have you flown in the air?

Your leaves withered and dried.
Can't forgive myself... i really cried.
I lost my dearest friend,
I had no one to lend.

I flew and flew up to heaven.
I beg you my lord, don't let it end.
Down on my knees, i prayed and bend.
'I'm so alone, please bring back my friend'.

The clouds went dark and there was lightning!
The rain was chasing while i was flying.
The place so dim, saw it's glooming.
Can't figure it out, where i'm heading.

At the end of the sky i saw the light.
So bright, so clear didn't knew what it might.
Flowers and trees  looked so lovely.
I  reached the heaven... i flew slowly.

From the distance, i saw a single tree.
So sad and still he didn't see me.
My friend forgive me, please don't be lonely
I will never leave you. I'm here to stay.
