Tree – Free Verse

I lean on you like a sturdy tree

Spreading your branches, envelop me

Tears wiped away with tender leaves

The more I struggle, the tighter you hold

p

{ margin-bottom: 0.1em; }

I fall asleep like a child under your shade

You never let light scorch my face

Harsh realities chased so far away

You whisper over and over that it will be okay

I don’t believe you, but I pretend anyway

Maybe it’ll be true sometime.. someday.
