The Willow Tree

The willow tree wrapped you in its dark embrace. Bark had kissed your shell like a dagger. Emerald leaves stitched a new grace. Rain fell that day, tearful with its stagger. You wanted to blend, but it made a trace. This transparency you left made my world shatter. May the doves make your soul fly once again dear. My dreams want you to be adorned in much cheer.
