The Tree’s Lament

The Trees Lament



I once was alive

Happy as could be

I had many friends

Who were always there for me


My green leaves danced in the breeze

But there was so many trees in my forest

It became a tight squeeze

It wasn’t so bad until the flowers started to bloom

But then we simply had no room


My friends slowly died

And maybe it was their branches that started to collide

But time went on, I watched as they slept,

Many years passed and each day I wept
