The Tree

I sit in your branches 
Reading my book in the peaceful bliss
The birds chirp and fly around your trunk
Teaching their children how to fly off your tree
The squirrels jump from branch to branch chattering
Your leaves rustling in the wind
Your roots far down in Earth
You belong here, tree
I sit in your branches
Watching the life happen on your trunk
I sit in your tree
Wondering what we would do if you were not here
