I see you in the distance tall and robust.
Majestic in the light of day or under the pale moonlight.
I've watched you grow and wished I had your strength.
That I could be held in your out stretched branches.
Feeling your warmth envelope me as I sit beneath you.
Watching you as you bare your soul for me.
The colors of the rainbow flutter to the ground.
This is the time we both hate.
The moment we must part ways.
The time has come for you to lay dormant.
Until the warmth and rain of spring wakes you from your rest.
The beauty of green buds speaking of rebirth and new beginnings.
How I long for the days when the naked truth is covered in leaves of green.
Your branches no longer bare.
My soul no longer alone.
Your bark warm upon my back.
I tell you how much I missed you.
Your branches rustle in reply and I know that I'm home.
