One More Day

We are,

Two leaves from that giant tree you see,

Swinging together in the summer breeze.

Harsh winds often flew us by,

But we stayed together for a while.

Days, months or maybe years,

Dancing together holding each other.

Wind against us separated us aside,

Lying on the ground broken we cried.

With an impossible dream,

We will find a way,

To swing together one more day.

So beautiful:
