We are Like Autumn Leaves

People are like leaves
we all grow on the same tree
our beauty gleams in the warmth of the sun
and we dance to the song of the summer breeze
never going in the same direction – but always as one
our colors vibrant in the cooler Autumn days
and in the embrace of colder winds, we sway
no longer the same, we change – are different
but still we are one
and as the winter weather nears, a sudden change
we drop and fall on earthen floor
where all began
and as our beauty fades and crumples
we finally see we never were as beautiful
as when we were one.
