Oak Tree

     the Oak  Tree

You were always someone special
In the midnight hours in my dream
I could really feel the tension
A tree, a limb, a friend
No matter how hard life came at me
There you stood perfectly
Letting me lean up against your stand
I will never forget the day you swayed the first hi 
I talked as if you were hearing
A tree, a piece of wood in my path
A punching bag
My Oak Tree you will always be

One day in my sorrowed life 
I stopped by just to reminisce 
Your beauty, I find so divine
Your leaves took me backwards
I fell in love with your soul all over again
With a beauty, I find so divine 
Hope you will always be there my friend
Indulging the felling you transcend 
A cold spot never found in you
Re-breathing your surround, no need to make a sound
The power you have when you make my heart mend
My Oak Tree you will always be my friend

In the lowest day of my life
I went on a secret walk to look for comfort
The beauty of you is no longer there
Walking around with an extra deep pain of hurt
Not sure how one could bare such a loss
Dropping myself to my Knees upon the dirt
An empty spot is the only thing there
My friend I thought you would always be there 
How can they take you away from this world?
A lonely field
No root, no seed
Loneliness no one to lean up against
You will no longer be there
How could they cut down, my friend?
My friend the Oak Tree.

Where are your seeds?

    You have some really wonderful poems, Linda. This is one I am very fond of. I'm sure there is far more to this poem than what lies on the surface. Quite creative.... Robert.

    It's seeds remain planted in the rich soil of all those whom remember the oaks natural beauty and in this is never truly dies, but remains always alive within your heart and soul.cheri

    Just another wonderful poem by the Poet Creator. You are definitely not a destroyer. With hugs.....Roger

    The ending was so heartbreaking. We as children can be so attached to inanimate objects... we even give them unique personalities. There was a sense of something missing... like the very last connection to your childhood severed. Powerful!

    Nice to hear someone - besides self - with a love for trees. New neighbors moved in next door a few years ago, determined where the property line was, then cut down this gigantic pine which rose between their house and ours. I was furious, but what could I do. You guessed it - they cut down everything we loved, then, after a couple of years, moved away. BUMMER! Congrats on the selection. Love, daver

    Dearest PD reading this reminded me of driving across the deserts of nm an az with no trees in sight. I remember thinking how do people stand living where there is no loving shade and friendship of giant trees. I felt every word of this lovely poem.....

    PD, I can't remember if I sent you an email this morning or not. Wanted to thank you for all the special attention and comments. Sorry you lost two sisters. So that means you also have five now, like me. I have a stepsister who I did not include with the description of the other four. She is a weird person but she is "family" too so I should not exclude her.

    amazing how many of us write poems about the Oak, this is no exception, and it is woven throught out with a wonderful story...

    what would we do without the comfort of nature! Light & Love

    P.D.--How are you doing? Why are you leaving? Are you just taking a break? Do you have writer's block? I think you are holding out on a big secret, and I feel left out.....

    What a beautiful poem. This was very well written. It is always hard to lose something we often times enjoy.

    P.D. this poem is excellent, especially is subject matter. It shows the relationship we build with nature over the course of our life. Whenever a tree dies so does a part of the earths spirit. God Bless, mj
