Read Time:46 Second [All For You]
Darling, just imagine…

That I am a leaf on a tree
Would I not live free?
I would grow flat-green-and-big

Even if I am a twig
With leaves upon my end
The leaves will be my friend

I’d grow to wondrous length
And from my branch
I’ll take my strength

All for you

If I’m a branch upon a tree
With leaves and twigs for company
I’ll be a part of your family

And If I’m a flower
Beautiful and sweet
I’ll hold on;

to the twig,
to the leaf
to the branch

All for you

But I’ll make you realize,
I’m like an Iroko, standing firm
From dawn till dusk

And surely,
I’ll be part of you
All seasons, with love
