Forever More

It's said true friendship is strong
A tree hundreds of years old
yet I saw a withered leaf falling
And the green begins to fade


Look beyond the withered leaf  
See past the fading green  
Look down into the soil  
Where strong roots do grow.

I can hear dry branches cracking
And all the oncoming storms
Black clouds darkening the sky
Are we strong enough to prevail?


Though the branches may crack  
As the winds bend them back  
Look beyond the darkening clouds  
The rays of the sun can be found.

I don't want to lose what we had.  
I don't want to see it die.
But the wind takes the leaves away.  
A barren skeleton is what is left.

 
You will not lose what is there  
The beauty of nature will prevail  
For beneath the soil the roots will grow  
Blooming leaves that are forever more  
 
When did we stop to care?  
Hoping the tree's big enough  
Our visits became rare  
So is this the final fall?

 
Never is this the final fall  
You live in my heart forever more  
Distance or time don't mean a thing  
for you're the rose that's within me.
This is a collaboration I have written with :icondiluculi: She is so very talented and is an amazing writer. A person I carry close to my heart. Thank you love for writing with me. :huggle:

This is also my first entry for the :iconglory-be-project: Hopefully I shall be able to write one poem a day.

Oh there is no "allowing" or "not allowing" at this group :) Really, I'm just hoping people will write alongside us all year because it motivates writers as a whole - and that at the end, it's fun to trade

I say that whatever get's people writing is good stuff!
