My Love She Is A Tree
My Love She Is A Tree - Poetry by Cathy Nerujen
(This poem is my first Love poem on Hub Pages. It's a romantic tribute, and dedicated to someone who is very special and dear to me, Cassy.)
In the highest mountains ever
near Olympus stands a tree,
where once I fell - when wounded
on its bough -
when it found me.
In the thinnest of the mountain air,
it basked in all its might,
indifferent to the elements,
its shape was quite a sight.
This tree it was so sturdy,
oh this tree she was not tall,
yet all the wind and rain that blew could
never make her fall.
Outshining all the other trees, she drank
in all the sun –
she stood there as a storm shelter,
Bedazzled by her beauty there, I stayed and
but leaving her I just could not,
and sun gave way to moon.
How strange it was, that past long day,
my burdens made a beach –
they played and swam within a rain,
then floated out of reach.
How strange it was I stayed with her,
this shelter from the storm -
her toughened branches –
hands became –
they took on friendly form.
And though this tree was
smooth to touch,
her bark was like cement,
she seemed so solid, wise yet young,
as almost Heaven sent.
My troubles they abated here,
though rain and sleet it blew,
her branches –
tree-top canopy –
made sure that nought got through.
I nestled in the bosom of this
life - affirming tree,
not sure what life had got in store,
for someone here like me.
I came to find a happiness
I’d never found before –
this tree, the leaves -
they spoke to me –
I warmed and wanted more -
as time goes by, like vine I grow
around her waist - and size –
my feet have sunk and taken root,
no longer seed am I.
She took me in as broken –
yet she made me whole again –
her lips are dew and Eldeweiss –
her blood is brandywine.
In all my seedling voyages,
I’ve never known a youth –
her spirit has a power,
such a life – a love – a Truth.
My love she is a woman – oh
my love she is a tree –
she smells of sweetened lilac –
and her sweetness sets me free.
We live and stay and grow together,
good company are we,
in want, in love and happiness,
we will - forever be.
(For Cassy, the ever supportive friend in my life.)
