For a friend passed away

For a friend passed away
I woke up this morning
and heard a leaf falling.
it wasn`t yellow or gray
it was a leaf of green and life
and it did not fall to the ground.

It went climbing up to the sky.
to the land up yonder leaving
other leaves as they cry.

I feel like a tree
with one leaf short of life
One leaf gone – as if
the whole tree went up with it
right up into the sky.

It went falling up the Milky Way
Falling further up right into
our Father`s hands,
From whence the little green leaf came
Frome whence it came.
