a tree said to the other

by Patricia J Reed

a palm tree and a spruce
oddly next to each other
lost in conversation
one tree said to the other
i saw a young girl cry today
how sad she must have been
she sobbed upon the ground
cursing at the wind
she looked so lost and helpless
sitting in the grass
though i think it wasn't the wind
she meant to harass
she spoke of lovers lost
of happy times gone by
and all at once
she ceased to cry
soon, hope and determination
filled into her eyes
her love was not lost
this she realized
and she spoke of better days
though some may be hard
she'd bravely deal
with wounded heart
one tree said to the other
the spruce to the palm tree
i hope she comes back
she sounds inspiring to me
