When The Bark Is Torn She Suffers - Poem by David Lacey

When the bark is torn she suffers,
She’s breaking down to cry.
To watch her mourn is to question why,
Why it is you have no tear in your eyes.
To lament for her soul for it never will die
Would be an exercise in futility.

    To weep for a soul that will never die
    Would be an exercise in futility.

    Just a little tighter!
