Just as the summer fades away
We see one single leaf,
Signaling the fall to come
Heralding the cool relief.
That little leaf cries out with beauty
Glowing warmth for all to see,
It is different, bright and special
Leading another way to be.
That little leaf causes us to smile
Way down deep inside,
For behind that delicate show
Another world would hide.
That little leaf lifts our soul on high
Inspiring us to follow,
To love around home fires of truth
And reject all that is hollow.
That little leaf is the first to give its life
Yet we will not detect its fall,
For being a leader of loveliness
Is a sacrificial call.
That little leaf calls us to ponder
On all life's changing season,
That the days we live are temporary
And death is for a reason.
One little leaf that flies in the wind
Whispers as it falls what is, to live,
In releasing all that entangles
The heart can freely give.
Though just another leaf, it waves to us of joy
A contented little soul,
For in blessing others in its sphere
It shares a heart of gold.
