Sacred Tree

Sacred Tree

My dear friend, I’ve put out my hand to a tree
To carve our initials for all folks to see
It was a tall oak and the wood of it hard
My hand, as it carved, well, the skin of it charred

The “J” for the joy you’ve brought to my life
The “R” for resistance to save us from strife
The “W” for the wetness you’ve brought to my soul
And tears finally led me to one to console

Then was a ‘plus sign’ to add myself in
Because I belong and I’m one of your kin

Next came a “B”, which is beauty throughout
The “L” for the love I felt, no need to doubt
The “R” for reluctance for letting love go
Because of the others we already know

One day I will tie forth a ribbon
The color of yellow, no, I am not fibbin’
Then I shall sit beneath this sacred tree
To hope ye shall remember and to wish I’d see thee

About bognetta

Love has been so much more powerful than other people's control. I think it's all love, but sometimes it doesn't feel like love. That is because so many people are defensive, protective, and do not care to trust in that four letter!
