The pain of falling leaves

THE PAIN OF FALLING LEAVES

Lifetimes are meant to last forever
If you live it clever
but never
We may now live in peace
Oh, with the trees

The forests gave us more than shade
But look at all that we have made
They bade
In this silent retreat
An orchid’s fleet

We ate the mountains and their rocks
And all the yields of tiring crops
River’s drops
Beauty turning brief
Burdened with grief

Now in distance we set our sight
Hoping in treasures of that light
A future bright
But the hunger has us breaking the seeds
Oh, the pain of falling leaves
