Autumns Death

Leaves turning brown, falling to their death
Severed from limbs like cast away children
Whispering winds comfort their descent
Peaceful words of becoming one with the earth.

Severed from limbs like cast away children
Listen to the sounds as you gracefully fall
Peaceful words of becoming one with the earth
Slowly fade back into mother nature.

Listen to the sounds as you gracefully fall
Float into the shallow ribbons of green
Slowly fade back into mother nature
Nourish the roots with life in your death

Float into the shallow ribbons of green
Gracefully you drift to your resting place
Nourish the roots with life in your death
Feed the hungry buds that come forth in spring.

Gracefully you drift to your resting place
Melting, melting, you slowly turn to crumbs
Feed the hungry buds that come forth in spring
Leaves turning brown falling to their death.
