Until forever

Oak tree

Sturdy oak, a tree to climb.

Carve our names, 2 make u mine.

Branches protect us from the storm,

This becomes our norm.

Push our children on its swing,

What will tomorrow bring?

Scatter your ashes around it’s roots,

I discover pain which strikes me mute.

Each day I come to stand and talk,

Oh how I miss our country walks.

I cry, I weep, I cannot speak,

I’m growing tired, I’m becoming weak.

The world seems empty, a baron land,

Without you here to hold my hand.

There is nowhere else for me to go,

My hair is greying, I come to show.

Your voice in the wind, whispers to me,

I’m coming my love, coming to our tree.

Thank you for reading, I’m an awful poet so apologise to all the incredible poets out there. The mood just took me to write this. I would love if you would read some more of my stuff and tell me your thoughts. SJ
