Leaves - Poem by Jewel Datri

Walking down the street today
I noticed a little leaf.
It was blowing after me.
Everywhere I walked it followed,
And every time I turned around it was there.
Throughout the rough roads and the smooth,
It stayed with me always,
And over time it grew.
It multiplied into more leaves.
Then they all surrounded me.
Up they flew and disappeared out of sight.
All alone standing there
Feeling very down.
When I turned a corner
And realized I was found.
My family and friends were there,
And surrounded me with hugs and warmth.
While outside it got misty,
And the leaves turned back to one
No more company to keep.
It flew to help some other person,
Who was suffering in their sleep.
