Forget Me Not
Beneath the shimmering willow tree,
It is where you’ll find me.
Initials carved into knotty bark
A token of my love for you
A delicate vine clings ‘round tree’s trunk.
Breathe in the tall, sweet grass
This is where you’ll find me.
When winds gust autumn
And tree rains gold upon mud Earth below
If you should need me,
Here is where you’ll find me.
Where crimson clouds blaze bold across the setting stage
A charcoal silhouette
Stands tall against the crooked sky
That is where you’ll find me.
I’ll rest beneath the untouched snow
Until doves come calling and mystic rivers flow.
Forget me not, for one hundred years from now
It is here, that you will find me
As one with all God’s creation
To once again, be born anew.
