Gone Free

Come sit beside me, hold me near
Come listen to the murmuring wind
I often walked against the wind
I often swam against the tide
And I did so when I met you
Some fifty years ago
Now I’m weary and growing old
Yet one day I shall run with the wind
You will hear a gentle sigh
Some will say he is dead now
Then you’ll remember I have gone free
I have gone with the whispering wind
But when the tree tops bow their heads
The wind and I are passing by.
