Trees

 The tree that held the forbidden fruit
     Held our destiny in its roots
The ancient secrets that it kept
     May hold the tears that the willow wept

The tree that holds  the robins nest
     Holds life most precious, it is blessed
The tree from which  the nightingale sings
     Holds the melody until spring

But the tree that I will forever miss
   Is the tree under which we kissed
So long ago our hearts did leap
   With sweet caress and passions deep
         The tree where hearts will meet in bliss
Is the tree that holds tomorrow's kiss
