You were the one thing that caught my tears after she left us that day. Then I was forced to leave you to that wretched child who tore you limb from limb. I miss the way your branches fit my every nook and cranny. I miss the way you caught my tears every time I cried. I miss the way you seemed to smile even though you have no face. I loved the way you were mine. I think of you all the time. I hope that child has realized what a great friend you can be. I wouldn't ever wish you loneliness. Oh dear tree, how I miss you so. Even though you weren't mine, you still live inside my soul.
