A Leaf In The Wind

A Leaf In The Wind

A leap
And a twirl
A drop
And a fall
Neverending
Into darkness
Light receding
Until it’s but a glimmer
A lost hope
Eternal flight
Without control
No direction
No more tries
No more lives
Just the one
Drifting
Into eternity
A leaf in the wind
Tumbling ever downward
The branch
Long gone
Only the black below
Calm
Yet turbulent
Silent
Yet noisy
Soft
Yet hard to swallow
To cope
