It Just Smiles

it-just-smiles

Hey listen

It has something to say;

The winds

To a leaf-less tree it sways,

To sing its song and go rhyming on

To blossom once more and bring back spring along.


But the tree knows better

Its roots won’t grow any longer

So it’s just waiting for the time

To be six feet under ground.


Yet the earth holds it firm

Hoping to see it grow some fern

Waiting to see it flourish again

Waiting to feel its groove again.


But, hey, it knows

It is being eaten from inside,

So it smiles ever so slight

Awaiting for the end of its time.
