A Fallen Tree

Rating: 4.9
Who will dance with the wind now that you're really gone?
Who will catch the sun's rays on the hot summer morn?

Who will slow down the gust when it's out of control?
Who will dilute the air that's toxic to my soul?

Who will speak to the clouds about sending the rain?
Who will shelter me from the storm and soothe my pain?

Who will stand in the rain when others hide away?
Who will provide a place for little birds to play?

Who will catch my rain drops before they touch the ground?
Who will keep luxuriant grass from turning brown?

Who will present me a fruit for my morning dish?
Who will nourish my eyes and satisfy my wish?

Who will fix this huge hole in the soil of my heart?
Who will give me comfort now that we are apart?

A lovely poem on love and funeral has been so touchingly and incisively delineated through question tags. I cite...... Who will speak to the clouds about sending the rain? Who will shelter me from the storm and soothe my pain? It is a great tribute to her whom you were loving much. Thanks for sharing.10

How is thank you so much for inviting me to read this. I know it reminded you of a poem that I had written but this is so much more elaborate and touching. I really loved it and it's a beautiful tribute to the one you love. It speaks so much from your heart and radiates from your soul. This is going to my favorites for sure.

A heart touching tribute in remembrance of a fallen tree- a shelter, a provider, a protector, a purifier! The poem acquires a higher glory when the reader comes to know that it is written in remembrance of your demised mother. Absolutely brilliant!

Beautiful! Absolutely non-stop beautiful. We need to be thankful for these things that give us such simple and immediate pleasures because they certainly leave a hole behind them when they are gone. Fantastic poem, my friend!
