A moonlight night, a swaying tree
A sleepless night, just tree and me
I watch the pattern cross my bed
Lacy pattern by moonglow spread.
So much pleasure from that tall tree
Who danced in moonlight just for me.
On still black nights it stood so tall
Like trusted guard on city wall.
Then one day, the chain saw scream
I looked to where my tree had been
When I can't sleep, I miss my tree
My leafy night time company.
