My Favorite Tree

(The Tree form) 

Nice tree 
Decorated house 
It was a nice tree 
It gaves us lots of shade 
Not big but in eyes perfect 
It's red blossoms I did treasure 
Nice tree 

Loved it 
Was good tree 
Truly got hurt 
Protected many years 
Then I have to let go 
Sorry can save it no anymore 
I'm so heartbroken now it's gone 
Love it
