The handsome, generous, tall green tree,
Stood for hundreds of years,
With its massive shade,
And extended hands,
Hugging me with its parental love,
Protecting me against all the odds—
Against the scorching sun,
Against the smashing wind,
Against the salinization of soil,
Against the growing wild weeds,
Against the camouflaged and exposed
Hazards attempting to uproot me.
Its’ continued protection made me strong,
And I never knew that there was much wrong.
One day, It fell down all of a sudden,
Transferring me all the burden,
Leaving me alone,
To become a tree on my own.
