A soft breeze gently rustles
the golden leaves that have fallen
scattered about,
below the twisted grey branches
of the tree
from which we used to swing.

Our names, carved by the hand
of this tenderhearted young boy,
still echo love,
of youth and of each other.

I now take your hand in mine,
and beneath the shadow of this tree,
a testament and reminder of our love,
I ask that we never allow it to fade
into the greyness of those limbs
or to dry and crumble like the leaves
that have fallen to the ground.

But that we allow it to grow
ever upward, and to be strong,
as the trunk of the great tree itself
that bears the evidence of this great love,
which beneath it's arms began.

Christopher M. Grimm

Love between two people that grows deep and strong even as they age and their youth decays. If only that were usually true.   Enjoyed the poem.

A proposal of such grace and gallant crafting...how on Earth could she refuse you? These are lovely sentiments, Chris.

I do so love this!!  I am a pushover for the "Mushy Love Stuff"!!  Hence the reason most of my poetry is about "Love"!!  Anywayz, very sweet!!

Nicely done Chris   I like trees and I'm a sucker for a fairy tale love story so you had my attention right away. What a great idea to take love and the tree growing to maturity in parallel!
