The Heartbeat Of A Tree - Poem by Psaltydog's Thoughts

Where's the heartbeat of a tree?
Where's the comfort in its branches?
Where's the warmth within its presence?
In songs and poems of life's romances.

Can a tree find counsel in a friend
and shed a tear due miles apart?
Or avoid the counsel of a friend
and, without a reason, thence depart?

Can a tree see clearly into eyes of love
conveying words that are unspoken?
Or have its life turned upside-down
and find two hearts completely broken?

A tree can face a sudden storm
violently raging beyond its might.
And though its roots are firmly planted
its eventual fall is due its height.

So, where's the heartbeat of a fallen tree?
Where's the comfort in its branches?
Where's the warmth within its presence?
Broken - firewood, charred in circumstances
