The Tree in the Woods

The tree in the woods is where my lifeline ties The promise I made until the cardinal dies was etched in stone for memories sake for this burden to carry and this burden to take Across the path through the glades I walk There was a lonely branch once where the cardinal stood And behold I saw the beauty in it Protesting it should stand well and good Upon to me a plead is made to make sure it never falls bear witness to this be it your word and should this tree fall down The man responsible will bear my mark of a sword planted in the ground For no passion has an animal than this cardinal perched When the time comes for it to take flight I dare a man to look away From such a magnificent sight Reviving me from previous nostalgia the bird whispered back to me Guard this tree with your life And wait till my return this tree is the knowledge of good and evil this message would my passion burn to guard this tree with all my being and to love the way it sways under the wind the tree branch flows And the birds who live in it singing remember the promise until you die remember the tree in the woods
