Silence

I lost my roots today.
I do not stand on solid ground.
My leaves, they are just hanging
and the wind makes weeping sounds.

I lost my roots today,
as that dark day of my life.
I need to sore this pain,
when the days get running by.

I lost my roots today
and it feels like tumbling down.
No branches reach for heaven,
no flowers, birds around.

I lost my roots today.
It was the last root that I cared.
I hope up there in heaven,
she find old roots,
that they forever share.

Every day your world grew smaller
and we parted step by step
What stays is remembrance
