Whirling leaf

I am a whirling leaf -with zest in my soul
As, lifeless, I float, to no where
Fallen from tree, into movement of wind
A granted blessing, of a humble prayer

Once clinging, living, feet tied to a bark
Bonding to every strand of life
Merry green and tender when born
Being bound to a place, my only strife

I swayed with the wind, I poured out my heart
Tell me what it feels- like, to fly?
In the end when I am a fallen leaf,
Would you hold me in your arms, when I die?

Take me to where, ever you go
Till I dry, crumble, touch the ground
Let the gust, tear me apart
But grant my wish, let me glide- unbound

Lovely words...we all want to be able to fly, but there's so much in each one of us that we are forever burdened by useless stuff.
