    The roots are dying
    and the drying branches have
    lost much of their strength.

    The leaves have begun
    to fall, and it's going to
    be my last autumn.

    It has been ages
    since squirrels, monkeys and birds
    stopped visiting me.

    No one in this world
    can help me restore my lost
    glory and splendour.

    Considered stately
    in my youth, I'd enjoy the
    attention I got.

    I'm past my prime and
    I've prepared myself for the
    inevitable.

    (I may be a snag,
    but I'm not going to be
    entirely useless.)

    I hated parting
    with my leaves but it would mark
    a new beginning.

    I loved to watch my
    leaves dancing on windy days.
    I will miss that now.

    I'd like to enjoy
    a few more autumns before I
    lose my existence.

    My own leaves will not
    be around, but that won't stop
    me from loving it.

    Let me behold those
    calming gorgeous hues and that
    warm golden sunshine.
