THE FAMILY TREE

images (6)

​I remember you
When you were five hands tall
I cradled you in my boughs
You slept in my arms
I watched you grow and listened to your tears
When you escaped the rage
You climbed into my arms
Camouflaged in my embrace
I calmed you with the song upon my limbs
Now you have grown
Come say hello my child
The memories come flooding back
Where is your song
Where is your offspring 
My arms lie forlorn
Bring me your generation
The fruit of her womb
Where are my children
Laughter and song
