Tell summer that I died

There are strange trees in the pale field
Of orange, red and yellow brown
Bare branches outstretched
Scream denial to the heavens

Tell summer that I died
That day the breeze came by
And drifted down from the branches
That once held me strong and steady

Tell summer that I died
That winter has come again
My heart frozen in time, I stand
Waiting and sleeping

Strangle our throats, such things,
They say. Whisper, whisper…
I once floated upon the wind
Now amongst the dirt, I linger.

Tell summer that I died
No longer a leaf on a tree
Weathered amongst the dirt
I will come again, you’ll see

Tell winter I will bloom again
My heart no longer frozen
Green life I grow and grow
Tell summer I’ll live again

Tell summer that I died
