Come speak the truth. Let me grieve. The tree on the hill has fallen in a storm.

They say, "Dear God, the shade is gone." They ask, "And how? It seemed so strong."

I can't answer them. I don't understand.

But I have seen rotten roots and tasted sour fruit. And I saw the storm descend. I heard the old wood groan.

They cry, "We've lost a place to rest." They say, "You've lost a thorn in your side."

No. I tried to understand. No. Maybe I gave up but I did care.

Gave it water. Gave it sun. We may have tried to save it, but it won.

We all saw the storm roll in. We all waited for the wind to blow.

I need a speaker to help me grieve. I need a speaker to help me heal.

Speak for the dead. I'm not sure he could speak for himself. I don't think he knew.

Come soon. Don't let me die waiting.

Speak for the dead.

I'll hear you now. I'll hear the truth. I'll hear you, speaker.
