Dead Twigs

Tags: thinking, rune

When everything felt like closing on you....

Desperately watered you every day
Singing to you some calming songs
Talking to you, begging not to die
Leaves keep falling out on you
Starting to dried up and died on me

Cried to sleep the whole day through
Woke up and looking at you, still sad
Said to myself your roots are still alive
Have to save you, replant where you
Might grow back to a new life

Despite you're dead twigs now
Replanted you in a new pot to survive
Watered you for days but no response
Singing to you back to life every day
Talking to you about how sad I am now

I am not giving up on you, don't leave
Don't take away the only hope I'm
Desperately holding on for dear life
Still, no signs of life you might still be
Alive, panicked, nightmare attacks at night

This morning you sprang to life
My heart beat fast got me excited
Leaves from your dead twigs
Sprouting to life, my heart smiles
You've come back to give a new hope

It's not the end, I hope...
