RIP Tree

on November 24, 2015

Rest in Peace, Oh Great Oak Tree

That once stood tall and proud

I will always remember the majestic green beauty of your leaves

The way come September,

deep reds and browns would come seeping through

I’ll cherish those moments of shelter,

from the sun and sometimes the rain

I can’t begin to imagine your pain

as they tore you down

cutting into the very fibre of your being

Any last memory of you, now covered in hard cement

a beauty that lasted years,

Gone in just an instant

Now no longer will children climb or play

No longer will the birds sing

from within your elegant branches

no more exciting glimpses

of a squirrel rushing by

Rest in Peace, Oh Great Oak Tree

Gone but not forgotten

I’ll remember you with every heartbeat

I’ll forever be grateful

for every last breath

Goodbye Oh Great Oak Tree

May You Rest in Peace

May you provide shelter for those above

and know you’ll always be remembered with love
