If I could have a tree

ImageIf I could have a tree that climbed towards the sky

That brushed the clouds and swayed with the wind

Whose branches were thick and safe and many

That held a multitude of secrets and ideas

That would let me play and imagine all day

And save everything it saw for me to see the next day

Never to criticize but only be a silent and loving companion in my imagination

To help broaden my view but allow me to look where I wanted to

To always be there, reaching up to touch the sky

Yet be firmly rooted in the warm soil of the earth

I think I’d never come down
