The Trees Are Bare

I lost you like

A tree looses it's leaves
I'm sure there are tears
I'm sure it grieves

You are gone
But I'm still there
Tall and strong
Exposed and bare

Looking at where
The memories grew
Missing them
More than I miss you

All can see
That I have lost
But they cannot truly
Know the cost

But I can see
The beauty in
Bark stripped clean
To begin again

The tree has no choice
Every winter it must die
It does not choose
No, neither did I

The trees are bare
I am too
We are ready
To begin anew
