Leaves Without a Tree

Leaves Without a Tree ©2017 Robert George BMI

Leaves without a tree
Sail the wind and celebrate their liberty
But the rinds of freedom are their only fruits
Now that they’ve renounced their father and their roots

Leaves without a tree
Fight amongst their own and never will agree
So they scatter north and south and east and west
As if chaos was the reason for their quest

With’ring on the scorching sand and pebbles
For ingratitude tolls a heavy fee
One more faction of abandoned rebels
Slowly becoming leaves without a tree

Leaves without a tree
Gather near an oak that’s motionless yet free
They enrich that mighty oak’s surrounding soil
Its own leaves grow verdant from remaining loyal

[/i]Ev’ry heart who’s lacking roots resembles
What a river achieves without the sea
When alone at night his freedom trembles
Like a small pile of leaves without a tree

Leaves without a tree
Sail the wind and celebrate their liberty…
