The Tree Trunk and I


A tree trunk

So tall 

So strong

Always unwavering in support 


I always find myself running back to you

In the rain, your hollowness is filled up with my tears 

Your branches and leaves provide shelter for me

and we can talk about anything under the sun

The strong wind blows down your flowers

landing perfectly on my head

Your leaves whoosh in joy 

The rustling seems to be saying "You look beautiful"


I will stay by your side

lay on you

Even if you cannot embrace me, 

the pillar of support exceeds more than that

and means a lot to me


X marks our spot on the map 

and marks your spot in my heart 

The footsteps mark that I was here

and the carvings on your trunk 

will never let you forget our existence

    You've got to love a tree. Ever dependent and reliable.
